One of Cumbria’s key roads – the A596 between Thursby and Workington – is set for major repairs starting next month.
Much of the work replacing worn-out sections of road with a brand new surface will be carried out at night, to minimise disruption to road users, by Cumbria County Council and its contractor, Connect Roads. Sections of the A596 covering more than 12km of road will be resurfaced.
Temporary road closures will be introduced during the night-time works, usually from 7pm-7am, with signed diversions in place. Some sections of road will also be closed for short periods during the day when milder weather allows completion of resurfacing.
Further maintenance work will be carried out, including resetting drains and manhole covers, gully cleaning, repairing or replacing damaged signs and street lights, and refreshing road markings.

A £500,000 restoration programme to prevent further erosion of the riverbank on the River Derwent is underway.
The Cumbria County Council project is aimed at securing the land between the river and the A596.
The road began eroding in 2009 when the county was hit by large floods, and has so far lost around 30 feet.
The work will involve placing 3,000 tonnes of limestone over a 100 metre stretch between Northside and Navvies Bridge.
Motorists are being advised that there may be some disruption on the A596 with one lane temporarily closing at Northside to allow for the unloading of heavy machinery.
The project is expected to take around 12 weeks to complete.
