The final phase of work will take place between Scarrow Hill and Naworth in Cumbria on Monday 3 August, and will last one week.

  • During the closure drivers travelling eastbound will be diverted at the M6 junction 46, on to the M6 to junction 44, along the A689 to Brampton roundabout where the diversion ends
  • Local traffic travelling westbound will follow the same route in the opposite direction
