Route

The original route of the A582

The A582 is another Lancashire road, south of Preston. It runs from the A6 junction with the end of the M65, north of Leyland, and then heads back towards Preston centre and the A59. Effectively, it is a Preston southerly bypass. Until a few years ago, though, it took a slightly different route, running from the A49 south of Preston, due north, but ultimately came out at the same place near the centre of Preston. This route originally started on the A49 and is now mostly the B5254. Its course may change again if the Preston South and West bypass (effectively an extension of the M65 westwards, linking to the missing junction 2 of the M55) ever gets built and takes the number – probably unlikely in the current climate.

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, they called it! The road joins the B5254 from Leyland and heads north through fields that haven't been built on despite that 1970s town plan, and long may it stay that way. The road turns north east and follows the route of a disused railway becoming D2 for a few hundred metres before joining the A59 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.

There are still two hopeful stubs pointing south from the roundabout at the current end of the Penwortham Bypass, hinting at what could've been
