The work is to try to ease traffic build-up along the busy road from Fleetwood to Kirkham and the M55 junction by dealing with bottlenecks.

From Friday, four-way lights will be installed at the Little Singleton junction to replace traffic loops in the road.

The work to do this will take place between 7pm – 5am on Friday night.
