Castle St Road Works

Motorists are reminded that Clitheroe town centre is now closed to traffic until the end of July for major refurbishment works.

Shops and businesses in Castle Street will be open as usual during the £600,000 revamp of Castle Street, with access to pedestrians at all times and controlled access for deliveries.

Work focusing on improvements to Castlegate, including the creation of a loading bay, started some weeks ago.

Now work on refurbishing the footway between Castlegate and Nettleton's Jewellers has started and Castle Street will be closed to traffic for the remainder of the scheme.

Work will be halted over bank holiday weekend and restart next Tuesday (7 May) from Nettleton’s Jewellers onwards.

The refurbishment scheme is a collaboration between Lancashire County Council and Ribble Valley Borough Council aimed at making Castle Street more accessible and attractive.

It features the widening of pavements, new paving and street furniture, along with some changes to parking.

The scheme has been warmly welcomed by residents and businesses following a public drop-in session, where people were able to see the plans and chat to the project team.

Road diversions are signposted and the locations of town centre car parks are available at
