Bridge closure in Burscough could cause problems for weeks
School Lane and Carr Lane will be closed for around four weeks whilst gas repairs are carried out. The bridge over the Liverpool to Leeds canal will be inaccessible as there is a large hole in a road leading up to it.
A post on Facebook Group Burscough Community Forum has implied quite a few drivers are ignoring the road closed signs and are then struggling to reverse back over the canal bridge. The road works are expected to finish on 19th September 2018.
