Preston Western Distributor and East-West/Cottam Link Roads Consultation

New Search

Purpose A new road linking Preston and southern Fylde to M55, known as the Preston Western Distributor, will support planned housing in north west Preston, improve access to the new Enterprise Zone at Warton and provide an option to avoid peak hour congestion in the city centre.

Linked to the Preston Western Distributor will be two new roads connecting to new and existing housing areas in north west Preston and Cottam Hall. These roads, the East-West Link Road and Cottam Link Road, will provide convenient access for local and through traffic to use the Preston Western Distributor, avoiding already congested local routes.

This consultation is about deciding on the routes for the new Preston Western Distributor, East-West Link Road and Cottam Link Road.

During this time we will also be holding a series of public exhibition events in the area. Come along to find out more, share your views and speak to an officer involved in delivering these road schemes:
