The Heysham to M6 link road builders Costain have now opened a visitors centre.

Situated at the former Broadoak site on Torrisholme Road next to Lancaster and Morecambe College, the Visitors Centre will be open to members of the public who wish to talk to the Community Relations team about the construction of the new road linking Heysham and Morecambe to the M6.

The centre will be open for three half days spread over the course of the week, excluding Bank holidays.

Community Relations Officer Tom Horton said, “The visitors centre is one of many ways people can talk and engage with us about the new road.

“We’ll initially open the centre for 3 half-days per week and review the opening times after a few months, once we’ve interacted with our visitors.”

The link road is due to be open to the public in the summer of 2016, although smaller elements will be open sooner. The Northgate and Morecambe Road junctions will be reconfigured and all four slip roads will be opened before the whole project is finished.

Opening times are Monday 1-5pm,, Wednesday 3-7 and Friday 8-1pm
