Major resurfacing for Wingates junction

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. 


  1. My drive way is on this junction, which means we need access, at what point other than finding out on Facebook, did it seem like it might be a good idea to inform residence as a council tax paying home owner?? It will cause total chaos.

    1. Hi Louise, thank you for commenting. I think the council place this information on the website, but I am quite sure that this is probably of no use to most people, who I am sure have better things to do that check the council’s website every day. We learnt of the news of the work and felt that it was important that we use our page here to let people know. I realise it will cause some inconvenience for a little while, but just to reassure you, the council MUST maintain access at all times. If this becomes an issue please let me know, but I hope it will run smoothly for you. I am sure the road will look much better once it is done. Regards, David
