Hannah McNulty reports on the multi-million pound plans that have been drawn up for Carlisle's roads.
Cumbria Council Council claims that if the developments planned throughout Carlisle for the next 15 years go ahead, they will cause difficulties for the city's roads if things remain as they are.
Multi-million pound plans have been drawn up to ease congestion on Carlisle's roads over the next 15 years.
Cumbria County Council has spent £30,000 on a study, looking at improvements to routes including Hardwicke Circus, and sections of Warwick Road, Botchergate and Scotland Road.
It's in support of Carlisle City Council's Local Plan, which looks at where thousands of new homes could potentially be built. The report identifies problems if large-scale developments take place.
The plans include adding extra lanes, and new walkways and cycle paths.
The total cost for the highway infrastructure is estimated between £3 and 4.05 million and the "sustainable infrastructure" scheme at around £4.6 million.
An £8 million wish-list for the future of Carlisle's road and transport network has been drawn up.
The proposal aims to ease congestion over the next 15 years as potential housing developments increase pressure on the city's roads.
The wish-list was drawn up following a £30,000 study that was jointly commissioned by Carlisle City Council and Cumbria County Council.
