A £430m scheme to deliver economic growth, new jobs and homes in Lancashire was launched today.
The City Deal is a decade-long plan to create more than 20,000 new jobs and more than 17,000 new homes.
It aims to boost the local economy by £1bn and attract £2.3bn in commercial investment.
Work has already started on an £8m scheme to cut congestion on the A582, a key route into Preston.
This first phase will widen the road at its junction with Chain House Lane, to provide more lanes for traffic and make it easier for cyclists to use.
Later this month sees an upgrade for the A582 north of Cop Lane to a dual carriageway with improvements to the junction with Leyland Road.
