Chaos for drivers at works

Road works on Wigan Lane cause traffic jams at the Boars Head junction

Road works on Wigan Lane cause traffic jams at the Boars Head junction

MOTORISTS face almost two weeks of misery on a popular approach road after roadworks shut one lane and caused lengthy queues.

Engineers thought to be working for a private contractor have cordoned off part of Wigan Lane, near the Boar’s Head roundabout in Standish, and installed temporary traffic lights.

The roadworks appeared on Saturday and are thought to be running until Thursday April 17.

Long queues of traffic extended back down Wigan Lane as far as the Cherry Gardens roundabout over the weekend, while commuters faced a wait of up to 25 minutes to get through the roadworks when travelling into Wigan from Worthington yesterday morning.
