A582 is a Lancashire road that forms a southern and western bypass of Preston. It runs from the A6 junction with the end of the M65, north of Leyland, and then heads back towards Preston centre. A multiplex with A583 leads westwards onto the Preston Western Distrubutor Road to head north and finish at M55.

Route

Lostock Hall - Lower Penwortham

Sign for double roundabout at Farington

From the roundabout at the A6 coming off the end of the M65 this road travels west, having been built in the 1970s when the area was designated an expansion town: Central Lancashire New Town. The road joins the B5254 from Leyland and heads north through fields that haven't been built on despite that 1970s town plan. Several junctions were improved in the late 2010s with traffic lights ready for impending on line D2. The road squeezes by a large electricity pylon as a S3 as a D2 planned did not fit! The road joins a roundabout where the new Penwortham bypass, the A59, joins then the road turns north east and follows the route of a disused railway as D2 for a mile then over a 1980s S4 bridge over the Ribble river into Preston itself. This part of the road was part of a grand scheme of D2 going towards the A59 and probably M59 from the city centre, never to be built.

Preston Western Distrubutor

On July 3rd 2023, the 2.5 mile Edith Rigby Way section of the A582 opened as a new link to improve congestion and travel times in the Preston area. Contractor was Costain, cost £207 million (including link roads). [1]

History

The original route of the A582

A582 previously took a slightly different route, running from the A49 south of Preston, due north, but ultimately came out near the centre of Preston. This route is now mostly the B5254.
