Football fans travelling to a Lancashire derby match have been urged to leave extra driving time as work continues on a major junction.

Work on the Highways Agency’s £1.3m junction improvement at Windy Harbour is continuing and this weekend involves resurfacing of the carriageway.

This work will be carried out during Saturday and Sunday without closing the carriageway but utilising the existing four-way temporary traffic signals arrangement

The work has led to major delays and hundreds of football supporters are expected to use the A585 route for the League One clash match between Fleetwood Town and Preston North End on Sunday, with kick-off 2.15pm.

A Highways Agency spokesman said: “This work will be carried out during Saturday and Sunday without closing the carriageway but utilising the existing four-way temporary traffic signals arrangement.

“The signals are staffed between 7am and 7pm to prevent unnecessary queueing but drivers are being advised the resurfacing operation will add extra time to journeys this weekend.”
