Many of the bridges in Blackpool were in a bad state of repair. To ensure that these bridges will remain open to traffic into the future, key bridges across Blackpool have undergone a massive repair programme over the last few years.

Yeadon Way upgrade works

From Monday 11 November 2019 Yeadon Way will be temporarily closed until May 2020 for upgrades to take place.

The improvements being carried out include:

  • Replacing old concrete walls with new safety fencing
  • Strengthening the road
  • Addition of new support columns
  • New drainage system incorporating new state of the art technology
  • Improvements to the overall look of the road and general safety improvements

The work is funded by a grant of £2.3million from the National Productivity Investment Fund and a contribution from our highways maintenance fund.
