City Temporary Traffic Restrictions 

As work gathers pace on the construction of the £45+ million Animate Leisure Complex, temporary traffic restrictions will be implemented in the coming weeks.

Ring Way

From 24 June to 16 September, there will be a lane closure to facilitate works on the £45+ million Animate complex.

The temporary closure facilitates the construction of the new slip road off Ring Way into the Animate basement car park. The slip road will enable Animate patrons to access the car park directly off Ring Way.

North Road

From the 26 August to the 23 September, during an overnight closure from 8.00pm to 6.00am daily, traffic will not be allowed to enter Tithebarn Street at the side of the Holiday Inn and adjacent roads (Ormskirk Road and Carlisle Street).

The closures are in place to accommodate highway improvement works associated with the construction of the Animate leisure complex.

The restrictions will operate along Ormskirk Road and Carlisle Street to its junction with Ring Way. Tithebarn Street will be closed to a point approximately 85 metres south of Ring Way.

Carlisle Street will also have a temporary restriction over a length of 30 metres behind the Holiday Inn Hotel, and Ormskirk Road will be shut completely.

Access will be maintained whenever and wherever possible, and alternative vehicle routes will be running along Ring Way, London Road, and Victoria Road for the duration of the restrictions.

Vehicle access for residents will be maintained whenever and wherever possible. Pedestrian access to properties will always be maintained, and an alternative bus route will operate during hours of road restrictions.

If you are travelling to Preston, please allow for additional travel time and thank you for your patience while we make an improved Preston to be proud of.
