A decision over plans to introduce a toucan crossing at a problematic Leyland junction is set to be made next month.

Calls have been made for much-needed work at the ‘Tiger’ junction where Longmeanygate meets Golden Hill Lane and Leyland Lane.

Lancashire County Council (LCC) announced plans to do the first stage of the improvement works between January and April.

A toucan crossing, which allows for pedestrians and cyclists to cross using a ‘green man’ system, is set to be installed on Longmeanygate between Lowther Drive and Hawthorn Close.

The proposals went out to consultation and the hope was that if there were no objections, work could have started this month.

However, a report has now been prepared for the LCC cabinet member “to consider objections raised.”

The report hasn’t been published publicly yet, but a decision is set to be made in early February.
