A ROAD will be closed for a week as a large section is resurfaced.

Crown Lane in Horwich will be shut between the Chorley New Road and Vale Avenue junctions at the end of February.

Cllr Stephen Pickup, Horwich and Blackrod ward representative, said: "Some sections of the road are visibly cracked and in a very poor state of repair and I am really pleased that despite dwindling resources, Bolton Council’s highways team has been able to prioritise Crown Lane for this much needed work. Local residents will naturally be inconvenienced during the impending road closure, but once complete Crown Lane should be vastly improved.”
