A major road resurfacing programme is to take place in Wingates this month.
The A6 between the junctions with Church Lane and Dixon Street will be completely resurfaced.
Church Street from the junction with the A6 to Holden Lea will also be resurfaced.
Westhoughton councillor David Wilkinson had called for action because the busy nature of the area, especially around the junction, had left the road surface worn out.
David said: “There is inevitably going to be some disruption during the resurfacing works, but this improvement is absolutely needed. It is something I had been asking for for quite some time so I am pleased that it is now being done.”
Temporary traffic lights will operate during off-peak hours between Saturday 25 July and Friday 23 August.
