Many of these development sites lie in close proximity to the M65 and/or require effective access to and from it. Congestion on the highway network during peak periods is likely to increase as a result of these major developments, which will increase travel demand across all modes.
The Burnley / Pendle Growth Corridor Improvements Scheme will enable additional capacity on the highway network and reduce congestion in support of economic growth across the corridor through highway improvements at 18 junctions, the extension of the car park at Burnley Manchester Road and the upgrading of passenger facilities at Rose Grove station. Key development sites across Burnley have been identified and these should realise positive growth from the delivery of the scheme.
