Caton Road Should Re-Open By Friday, Council Tells Bay News

Lancashire County Council has told The Bay that it hopes to have Lancaster's Caton Road fully re-opened again by this Friday (January 5th).

Its highways team is planing the damaged surface off today (Wednesday), which will be followed by resurfacing work.

A stretch was shut last week after a serious collision between a car and a coach, which resulted in diesel being spilled. 

After it re-opens, further work will be carried out to lay an anti-skid surface in places and paint fresh lines.

That phase of work will be done with temporary traffic lights rather than a full road closure.

Lancaster's MP Cat Smith isn't happy with the length of time it has taken for steps to resolve the issue though.

Before the re-opening date was confirmed this week, Ms Smith wrote to Lancashire County Council demanding to know why it has taken so long - and also asked why signage on the approaches to the closure were - as she described, "inadequate".

We have approached Ms Smith to enquire as to whether she has had a reply yet, and you can read her letter below:
