This week, the fifth in January 2008, saw the momentous occasion down at the Philips Road works. Not seen for many years, the site where Little Harwood Brook and Knusden Brook come together to form the River Blakewater. This is the water course that early settlers chose when Blackburn was formalised as a settlement in Roman times.
The steelwork prefabrication in the foreground looks like it may be a cover for the junction and contains an inspection hole. This is this week's roadworks news.
