National Highways have announced completing the final phase of fully opening the A585 bypass, helping to reduce congestion and the impact of traffic on the local community, improve safety, and remove a major bottleneck on the main road to Fleetwood.

This means that drivers are now using all four lanes of the bypass at the national speed limit of 70mph. For safety, the speed limit will be reduced to 50mph toward Poulton junction and 40mph on the approach to Skippool Bridge junction.

This is a significant milestone for road users and the local community. The project adds approximately three miles of new road around the village of Little Singleton, adding much-needed capacity to deliver smoother and more reliable journeys.

National Highways have extended their thanks to drivers for their patience and cooperation throughout the work and invite feedback on the project.
