A major road plan 65 years in the making


Work on the Heysham to M6 Link Road is progressing well with construction now entering the final phase. We’re also planting trees, shrubs, grass and flowers as part of the landscaping and with less than a year to go until the road opens planning is already underway to mark the opening.

The new road which will be officially named Bay Gateway, will be open to the public later this year. The Northgate and Morecambe Road junctions will be reconfigured and all four slip roads will be opened before the whole project is finished.


The long-awaited new road will make the area more appealing for businesses by reducing travel times and increasing connections to the regional and national road network. It will also reduce congestion and help people to get around the area, opening up new job opportunities.
