Cumbria County Council are set to start resurfacing work on the A7 on Scotland Road and Kingstown Road in Carlisle. The work will begin on Tuesday 29 August and is expected to last nine nights, not including weekends.
The work will happen between 7pm and 6am under temporary traffic lights. The cost of the work is said to be around £200,000. Efforts will be made to keep disruption to a minimum:
- The main works between Bannatynes gym and the Lowry Hill traffic lights will likely cause the most disruption, expected to take 7 nights to complete.
- The Northbound and Southbound approaches to the Lowry Hill pedestrian crossing, expected to take one night to complete.
- The Northbound approach to the Kingstown pedestrian crossing and the parking bays outside Kingstown Post Office, expected to take one night.

Stretches of the M6 in Cumbria are getting a £2m upgrade to repair potholes.
In all, five resurfacing projects are taking place at different locations between junction 36 of the motorway at Kirkby Lonsdale and junction 39 at Shap over the next few weeks.
“These are routine repairs – typically to tackle potholes and other surface defects caused by wear and tear – to ensure users of the M6 through this part of Cumbria can continue to enjoy safe, smooth and reliable journeys.
“There will be no full carriageway closures and we are doing all we can to keep traffic moving by keeping as many lanes open as possible and doing most of the work at night when traffic volumes are low.”
Motorists should expect delays this morning from Kingstown in Carlisle to Northumberland.
Police will be escorting a slow moving load via the A689 to Brampton and then on the A69 until around 1pm.
