The M55 Dagger road bridge in Fylde will be closed for five days this week for maintenance and repairs.


Northwest National Highways will carry out the work from Monday, September 5 (8:00 a.m.) to Friday, September 9 (5:00 p.m.).

They will replace a joint in the concrete of the roadway, to ensure the bridge is well maintained and safe to use and to improve access for pedestrians, they will resurface the two sidewalks on the bridge.

A National Highways spokesman said: ‘We will be required to close the bridge to traffic 24/7 for the duration of the works. A fully signed diversion will be in place which has been agreed in advance with the police and local council. The same diversion will be used for trips in the opposite direction, but in the opposite direction.

Traffic will be diverted onto Salwick Road, left onto Harbor Lane, continue to junction with Treales Road, turn left onto Treales Road, continue onto Dagger Road.

Disruption should be minimal, but you should allow extra time for your trip while these repairs are completed. Pedestrian access will be maintained during the works with an open path for pedestrians.

In the event of bad weather, the works will stop, customers will be informed via the national road website and social networks of any changes.
