Roadworks map

The roadworks map shows all road and street works taking place within the Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council boundaries.

Works are represented in a works triangle along with logos to identify the type of works (Gas, Water, Electricity, Telecoms etc) and are coloured according to their expected impact.

  • Green – Low Impact
  • Amber – Medium Impact
  • Red – High Impact

You can also find out specific information on what the works involve, when the works will be carried out, by who and the relevant contact information should you wish to speak to someone about it.

Restrictions on roadworks

If a road has recently had significant work the Council may temporarily protect sections of it from further roadworks under Section 58 of the New roads and street works act 1991. We provide advance notice of these restrictions so that utility companies and private contractors / developers can plan work in advance. This helps to minimise traffic disruption and prolong the life of the roads.

  • The restrictions can last up to five years following the completion of the works.
  • Emergency works such as gas escapes or loss of power are exempt from the restriction.
