Work on the £6m. Town 2 Turf redevelopment scheme is on schedule, according to Burnley Borough Council.

The huge project, which has proved controversial with many residents who have complained about the cost and disruption, is set to be completed in the summer.

Business owners in the vicinity of the project, which aims to make it easier for fans to access Burnley Football Club’s Turf Moor stadiun on foot, have also complained about the impact on trade.

A number of key pieces of work are now planned for early next month and will include the filling in of Centenary Way subway with overnight road closures to allow re-surfacing of the Yorkshire Street/Church Street/Centenary Way junction. Traffic lights will be installed and road markings put down.

It aims to improve pedestrian safety and boost links between the town centre and the Brunshaw/Pike Hill area of town. It will also form part of a “regeneration corridor” from the Weavers’ Triangle (and all the work connected to the expansion of UCLan) through the shopping centre to the football stadium.

The scheme is being funded through Levelling Up grant money and other funding in partnership between Burnley Council, Lancashire County Council and Burnley Football Club.
