Work to install average speed cameras on a shortened section of the A583 between Blackpool and Preston is due to start soon – more than a month late.
Cameras will be placed on a three-mile stretch of the 50mph route between the Wrea Green roundabout and Clifton, on the outskirts of Preston.
It had initally due to be a longer section from Peel corner – taking in the anti-fracking site at Little Plumpton – but was reduced after accident figures were analysed.
Work on the shortened section is now set to take place from the end of next month with a view to being completed by early in the new year.
It had been due to start this month intially.
The original eight-mile section was the longest single stretch of average speed enforcement planned for the county as part of a series of schemes across Lancashire.
A spokesman for Lancashire Police said: “The A583 was always scheduled to be the last site. The fracking hasn’t delayed the installation but there has been a little slippage with the project which has impacted upon the timescales for subsequent sites.”
