Progress is being made to construct a new link road in Newton-le-Willows, as part of the Parkside development which will deliver much-needed investment and jobs for local residents. 

To enable the next phase to be carried out safely where the new road meets the existing highway, St Helens council is planning a road closure at the A573 Parkside Road from its junction with Barrow Lane to the boundary with Warrington from 24 April to 28 July, with a clearly signed diversion route in place. 

Parkside Link Road will connect the derelict Parkside site - a former colliery - to J22 of the M6 motorway, taking goods traffic away from nearby roads such as the A49, helping to reduce the impact on residential roads and improve the local environment.

Since the project started in January 2022, a number of significant works have been completed, including sections of carriageway, footway, drainage, and street lighting from Winwick Lane through to Parkside Road and Parkside Road heading west towards the A49 Winwick Road.
