Temporary closure of Knott Street

Published Thursday 29 January 2015 at 13:17

Flood repair work is due to be carried out on Knott Street, Darwen, from February 9th.

As a result, the road will be closed to traffic and a diversion will be in place.

The road was damaged by flooding during the summer of 2012 causing Knott Street and part of Back Railway Road to be weakened.

Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council is to carry out repairs to the carriageway in Knott Street close to the Library, and a short section of the back street leading from Knott Street.

The work will involve the reconstruction of the carriageway in this location. Prior to this, a service diversion is required to a water service main.

It is due to start on 9th February 2015 with each phase running concurrently for a period of five weeks. The whole of the works are due to be completed around 15th March 2015.

Councillor Maureen Bateson, Executive Member for Regeneration said:

We hope to keep disruption to a minimum but this work needs to be carried out to repair the road.
