Update 16 November 2020

Nov 16, 2020

Work on a major new link road leading to the £100m regeneration scheme at Broadway Green is nearing completion.

The final stage of the major infrastructure project began in January 2020 and has included the decommissioning of Crossley Bridge, the old railway bridge located north west of the San Rocco Restaurant, and the construction of a new signalised junction on Broadway.

Traffic restrictions in place on Broadway have now been removed and all lanes of the A663 have re-opened. Both the north and southbound footpaths and nearby pedestrian crossing have also re-opened.

The new link road will give motorists and pedestrians access to the development, which once complete, will provide more than 600,000 sq ft of employment space and up to 500 new homes.

It has been named Lydia Becker Way after suffragist Lydia Becker whose family lived at nearby Foxdenton Hall. The new link road will remain blocked off at the junction with Broadway until mid-December whilst final landscaping works are carried out.

Once open it will connect Broadway with Foxdenton Lane, Chadderton. We will update further when a date is set for opening.

Neighbours, pedestrians and road users are thanked for their patience during the construction of the new road.
