New Motorway signs: Four giant electronic message signs are being installed near junction 33 of the M6 south of Lancaster.

The signs will give drivers better warnings of incidents and weather information.

New CCTV cameras will also be mounted on the signs. The work should be completed by Friday March 14. Lane one of the motorway is likely to be closed in both directions while the work takes place, with some overnight closures of lane two.


Seventy one new homes could be built at Lancaster Leisure Park. A planning application will go before Lancaster City Council on February 3. Council officers have recommended that permission for the development by Miller Homes Ltd be granted.
