Repairs worth £450,000 will be carried out on Pilsworth Road next week as part of the council’s £30 million programme of highways works.

The road surface will be mechanically removed and a new surface course laid from Roch Bank Road across the junction with the M66 to Jacksons Fold Barn.

  • Signed diversions will be in place.

During the works, drivers can access the M66 from:

  • Junction 17, M60 in Whitefield
  • Junction 2, M66 at Heap Bridge in Bury

Access to Pilsworth Retail Park and Industrial Estate
