A message from Urban Vision about the work being carried out on the Roe Green Loopline

On Monday 5th January the next phase of the Roe Green Loopline Improvement works will start in close proximity to the rear access gate of Walkden High School. These works will be taking place at the same time as works on the A580 East Lancashire Road near to Old Clough Lane (as part of the A580 bus priority scheme) which currently requires the closure of the North steps leading to the A580 East Lancashire Road which is a popular pedestrian access route to the school.

Due to funding commitments, the Roe Green Loopline Improvement works have to be completed in time for the next financial year which is April 2015 and cannot be completed at any other time. This means the works have to be completed at the same time as the A580 bus priority works.

In order to provide a safe pedestrian access route for the school children at Walkden High School, from Monday 5th January a temporary footpath will be put in place alongside the works on the Roe Green Loopline from the South steps leading to the A580 East Lancashire Road and the rear access gate to Walkden High School.

The temporary footpath will be available for the school children to use before 8.40am and after 3.10pm and it will be completely fenced off from the works on site. Once the school children have entered/left the school, the temporary footpath will then close between the hours of 8.40am and 3.10pm, so that the contractor can proceed with their works on the Roe Green Loopline. This arrangement will be in place until the Roe Green Loopline Works have finished at the end of March 2015.

Meetings have been held with Walkden High School about the above arrangements and they will communicate details of the temporary footpath to all pupils so they know how to safely access/leave the school on foot during these works.
