Kirk Beck Bridge, Caton Road

 Traffic has not been able to drive along the section of road nearest the church for many weeks now, with single alternate line traffic controlled by traffic lights.  This is because the underside of the bridge is weak and Lancashire County Council’s road engineers do not want HGVs or buses driving over it.  Work is now due to start in the New Year and be completed by April 2016.  Meanwhile the contractors who provide the traffic lights have been asked to check that they are working correctly and to ensure that the coned-off area is as small as possible to allow vehicles through more easily.
