The operation is designed to target drivers on ‘high-risk’ road routes in the borough.

Officers set up on Chorley New Road just after 2pm, with a large dot-matrix display.

High-risk roads, such as Chorley New Road, have been selected based on GMP research.

There have been a number of fatal collisions on the road.

On May 5, 2022, a drunk driver ran a red light before hitting  52-year-old Lee Raynor, who was cycling on the road. He sustained fatal injuries.

Inspector Nick Bonson said: “We did the research, and we understood the main roads that contributed the most – that’s where we’ve really focussed our patrols, so we get the most value for the time we invest, but there’s no particular road we won’t patrol."
