An open meeting is being held in Warwick Bridge in Cumbria, as part of the campaign to divert traffic away from the A69, onto a safer but parallel route.
Campaigners say part of the road - that links with the M6 - is unsuitable for heavy lorries, and too many lives have already been lost.
Andy Burn has the full report:
An open meeting will be held in Warwick Bridge on plans to divert heavy traffic away from the village.
The proposals would see the A689 diverting traffic away from the A69 at Brampton.
Campaigners say the A689 is a straighter wider road that doesn't pass through any centres of population.
A public meeting is taking place to relaunch a campaign to de-trunk the A69 road between Brampton and Carlisle.
Local MPs John Stevenson and Rory Stewart will attend the meeting in Warwick Bridge to add their weight to the campaign.
For decades there has been talk of de-trunking the road, which literally splits the communties of Corby Hill and Warwick Bridge.
