Southlink Regeneration development part of "Better Place" strategy


Highways improvements are being carried out on the large Southlink regeneration development.

The work is taking place on the site of the old Oldham Mumps Railway Station. Over 150 residential properties are being constructed built including semi-detached, housing blocks and flats.

There will be an  upgrade to the existing junction at Prince Street and Oldham Way. There will be some disruption during the period of the works. Including an onslip closure from Emmott Way roundabout to Oldham Way. 

£4.174m worth of funding has been secured and work

is expected to last for up to 18 months.

The Southlink scheme is part of Oldham Council’s ‘Creating a Better Place’ strategy which aims to transform the town with £285m of investment, including building more than 2,000 new homes in the centre.
