2. M55 junctions 1 to 3
Narrow lanes and a 50mph speed limit are in place along a short stretch of the motorway where a new junction (junction 2) is being constructed as part of Lancashire County Council’s Preston Western Distributor road project.

A seven-month project of bridge repairs and resurfacing started in April. Work to re-waterproof the bridge deck over an underpass at the eastern end of the bypass was completed on Wednesday, May 19. The project will resume on Saturday (June 12) with a start on the carriageway reconstruction and resurfacing. During the daytime a lane in each direction will remain open, with a 40mph speed limit in place. Convoy working - along short stretches of the road and where drivers are stopped briefly before being led past the roadworks - will be in place overnight, between 7pm and 6am from Sunday to Friday each week.
