Following the public consultation in autumn 2016 we have analysed your feedback and have written a consultation report. To find out more you can read the:
- public consultation report: this is the full technical analysis of the public consultation
- summary of the public consultation report; this is a summary of the report on public consultation, providing the key information you need to know
You can view the reports and all the consultation material on the consultation page.
We will consider the results of the consultation in the selection of the preferred option, along with other factors such as value for money, safety and meeting the scheme’s objectives.
We plan to announce the preferred option later this year.
Why we need this scheme
The A585 is the main road in and out of Fleetwood and surrounding areas and it is heavily congested between Windy Harbour and Skippool, where drivers frequently experience significant delays, particularly during morning and evening rush hours.
The volume of traffic is also a concern for local users, pedestrians and cyclists.
We aim to improve:
- journey times on the A585 between
- Windy Harbour and Skippool junctions
- safety for all road users
- access for local users, pedestrians and cyclists
Over the coming months we and our suppliers will be increasing our understanding and collecting additional information about the area. In particular you are likely to see people collecting environmental information to establish the potential impacts of the development.
The land surrounding the A585 has importance for migrating birds such as pink footed geese and this will be one of the focuses for assessment. If you are a landowner you may be asked to allow access to the people carrying out these surveys. Thank you for your help.
