Work is underway on the M55 to create a new junction for the Preston Western Distributor also at the A583 intersection. This new road will link Preston and the southern Fylde: Freckleton, Warton, Lytham St Annes, to the M55 early in 2023.
The Preston Western Distributor will link the A583 Preston to Blackpool main road and the M55 motorway and could be the start of a new River Ribble crossing.
Thousands of new houses are being built in the area north west of Preston.
