Fylde Officers have recently been attending numerous road closures and have asked for a message to go out with some road closure advice on.
Please be aware that if a Police Officer is stood in the middle of a road directing traffic, the likelihood is that the road is closed.
Please follow the Police Officers instructions as the road could be closed for numerous reasons:
– Flooding / environmenntal issue
– Serious road traffic collision resulting in the road being treated as a crime scene
– Failure of traffic lights
– Debris in the road
We understand that it is frustrating having to take a diversionary route, especially if you have somewhere to be, but this is not the Officers fault and the road closure if put in place to keep you and other people safe.
Many thanks for your cooperation
