The council has given an update on a four-year road improvement plan taking place across the borough. 

A number of roads in Bury have been identified for resurfacing as part of the Highway Investment Strategy programme taking place from 2023/2024 to 2025/2027.

The council announced last week that two roads in Radcliffe will be the latest carriageways to be subject to improvement works, meaning both will be temporarily closed between certain times for a number of weeks.

The four-year programme of works is designed to ensure the surfaces of streets, roads and cul-de-sacs are high quality, durable and safe, supporting residents and motorists.

From Monday, October 16, Coventry Road in Radcliffe will also be subject to resurfacing works and will be closed from 8am to 5pm with temporary diversion routes in place.

Work on the road is expected to last until Friday, October 27 while existing road surface is removed, and a new surface is laid.
