Work to improve two village sewer systems is set to start in May.
United Utilities’ work to connect a number of Singleton homes to a new public sewer will now start on Garstang Road.
The decision was taken by the company to change the sequence of work to manage the impact of traffic along Mains Lane.
This change will give United Utilities engineers more time to plan how the work on Mains Lane can be carried out to avoid any unnecessary disruption.
Starting in May, near Mains Dyke Bridge, Garstang Road will be reduced to one lane.
Temporary two-way traffic lights will be set up and will move along the road as the work progresses.
David Scott, project manager from United Utilities, said: “We had flexibility in how we could start this project. We have therefore decided to progress our work on Garstang Road first.
“We will continue to work in the background to plan how we can best complete the Mains Lane phase of work.”
