Tramway construction

Construction of the new tramway along Talbot Road began in April and work is progressing well.

The extended tramway will connect Blackpool North Station to the promenade, helping people get to where they need to be by providing a direct link to shops, hotels and attractions.

As all of the work is being phased, only small areas of Talbot Road and its junctions will be closed at onetime.

Temporary closures
 Map area Road closed Approximate timescales
1 Talbot Road, from The Strand to Abingdon Street 24 April to 31 August
2 Talbot Road/Abingdon Road junction 18 July to 22 August
3 Talbot Road, From Abingdon Street to Dickson Road 3 September to 30 November



Businesses in the town centre will be open as usual and pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the closures.


During this time there may be some inconvenience but we are doing our best to make your journeys as hassle-free as possible. Please be aware that diversions are in place and you are advised to follow diversion signs around the town centre.
