Preston is a city in the traditional county of Lancashire. It is the third largest city in the North West of England.

The city is traditionally a large market town and became a centre of the cotton industry during the Industrial Revolution. It was awarded city status during the Queen's Golden Jubilee Year of 2002. It is an important meeting point of several cross country routes and was the first town in Britain to have a motorway bypass (now the M6 and M55).

Future road schemes

Broughton Bypass (Phase 1) - A bypass the village of Broughton on the A6 just north of the M55

In September 2013 it was announced the city had secured "City Deal" funding to allow 25 years worth of infrastructure to be built within the next decade in the Preston and neighbouring South Ribble area.

Preston Western Distributor - Linking the A584/A583 (including the BAE Warton site) to a new Junction 2 on the M55. The following orders were published in the London Gazete on 23.02.2018


South Ribble Western Distributor - Dualling of the existing A582 from the M6, M61, M65 to the city centre.

Penwortham Bypass - New construction linking the South Ribble Western Distributor from the Broad Oak roundabout to the A59

Broughton congestion relief - the extension of the Broughton Bypass to fully bypass the village.

The "South Ribble Western Distributor" and "Preston Western Distributor" will be constructed to enable a future Ribble Crossing to constructed which link the two routes and providing a western bypass of Preston.
