As part of the ongoing bus priority project, Galliford Try will be undertaking works on the Liverpool (west) bound carriage way. Unfortunately, as a result of these works the footpath and cycle path between Moorside Road and Old Clough Lane (Liverpool bound), which is the Southern side of the A580. This is being closed on the 16th February due to road widening for the bus lane on the opposite side (Manchester bound) of the A580. We expect the footpath and cycle path to be closed until late summer.

During this period there will be diversions required Signs will be placed advising a diversion route of: Hazelhurst Road > Broadoak Road > Greenleach Lane > Old Clough Lane. Please see the attached drawing.

However, access will be maintained to the Liverpool bound bus stop on the Moorside Road junction (opposite Wardley Industrial Estate) and the properties nearby. The Liverpool bound bus stop on the Old Clough Lane / A580 junction will be closed but a temporary one will be provided close by.

The details and visual leaflets of the A580 Bus Priority scheme are available at If you would like to receive up to date information about the roadworks on the A580, please register your email address with Urban Vision at or follow them on twitter @urbanvision uk.
