Roadworks bulletin

Major works → Robin Park Road

On Monday 19th November, Robin Park Road will be closed at the Fire Station from 9pm - midnight, to allow United Utilities to repair two manhole frames and covers.

The diversion will be signed via Ormskirk Road - Wallgate - Queen Street - Chapel Lane - Riverway - Powell Street - Northway - New Market Street - Frog Lane - Woodhouse Lane - Scot Lane - Robin Park Road.

This is the only suitable route for large vehicles.

The aim of this bulletin is to give the public advance notice of roadworks in the Wigan Council area. The council recognises that roadworks can cause inconvenience and it is hoped that this information helps to minimise delays and other problems associated with the works.

This bulletin is updated weekly and every effort has been made to provide accurate and up-to-date information, but it is not intended to be a definitive list and cannot cater for works carried out at short notice. The council also reserves the right to make changes to the programme if emergencies arise.

For any emergency work that has a major impact on the road network, we aim to notify members of the public via Wigan Council's social media pages as soon as possible.

Please see useful links below that allow residents to forward plan their journeys in and out of the Wigan borough.
