Hi Kay, I just wanted to keep you up to date regarding works in Roddlesworth Woods.
We are now in a position to begin the forest road construction works and so we have a start date of 5th June. We anticipate the works will take around 4 weeks to complete, during which time the footpaths in the vicinity will be temporarily closed. We have put up signs (see attached) informing visitors of the imminent works and the footpath closures including an alternative route avoiding the working area. As soon as the work begins we will close the footpaths for the Health & Safety of members of the public and the contractors.
Also, Roddlesworth Lane, leading off Bolton Road (A675) into the woods will be busy with heavy construction traffic for the period of the works.
As soon as the works are complete, the footpaths will be reopened.
