| Overview

Gosling Consulting have been appointed by Rossendale Borough Council as cost manager to support the Council as Lancashire County Council’s highways engineers develop designs to greatly improve the traffic flow in and out and around Rawtenstall.

The Gyratory System scheme around St Mary’s Way and the surrounding roads will massively ease the traffic congestion reducing waiting times and making journey times through the town shorter.

Improved safety for pedestrians and cyclists is also a major consideration of the changes with the latest hi tech equipment being used on signal upgrades and crossings.

The expected increase in Rossendale’s population by 2035 and the greater volume of traffic have been addressed by the plans to make the Gyratory System fit for purpose.

One major move is the infilling of the unused subway allowing more space for pedestrians and cyclists.

Work is expected to begin in January 2025 and completed by March 2026.

Rossendale Borough Council successfully secured the funding in April 2023 from the Capital Regeneration Project supported by Levelling Up and appointed Lancashire County Council to develop the concept design.
