Jack Walker Way mini roundabout works

Published Thursday 14 January 2016 at 15:30

Work is due to start on Sunday, January 17 to build a mini roundabout at the junction of Jack Walker Way and the A666.

The roundabout will replace traffic signals and will include new road crossings and pedestrian islands.

The Council undertook a comprehensive consultation exercise with local residents in relation to the A666 / Jack Walker Way junction in December 2014 and January 2015.

Out of the 159 responses received by the Council, 72% said that they agreed with the key element of the design, replacing current traffic signals with a mini roundabout.

The project phases are:

  • Phase 1 will begin on Sunday, January 17 2016 and will see the introduction of a “Thermoplastic Marked Mini-Roundabout” which will replace the de-commissioned signalised junction, which cannot be kept in its current state for safety reasons.
  • Phase 2 will be delivered in financial year 2016/17, funded by the Council’s Local Transport Plan, and will see the completion of the scheme to deliver a permanent mini-roundabout. This package will involve changes to kerbing to Bolton Road and Jack Walker Way given the width of the road, the introduction of revised pedestrian islands to aid safe crossing, high friction surfacing and block paving to improve the junction’s appearance.
