Roadworks and closures​​​

Licenced utility companies, contractors and the highway authority can carry out essential works on the roads in the borough of Rochdale for a variety of reasons such as to access existing/ install new apparatus, for highway improvement schemes and planned resurfacing works and other maintenance to bridges, roads and footpaths.

All roadworks should have a visible courtesy sign or permit board that gives a contact phone number and who the contractor is working for. This list is generally ​updated daily, Monday to Friday; any broken links are likely due to roadworks being cancelled by the promoter after this page is updated.
