Roadworks in Cumbria

Highways England says the following roadworks will be in place in Cumbria next week:

M6 Junction 34 Lancaster

Work off the motorway on the Heysham Link project means the southbound exit slip road will be closed between 8pm on Friday (9 October) and 6am on Monday (12 October). A clearly-signed motorway diversion will be in place.

M6 Junction 38 Brough to Junction 39 Shap

Work to resurface sections of the southbound carriageway near Tebay Services started on 21 September. Contractors will also install new reflective road studs, replace road markings and carry out repairs to two bridges. Two lanes will be open to traffic during the day, between 6am and 8pm, and one lane overnight, between 8pm and 6am. The project is due to be completed by the end of October.

A595 (south of Workington)

Work to replace drainage and improve footpaths started on Monday 7 September between the junction with the A66 at Bridgefoot and further south at Winscales. The work is due to be completed by Friday 16 October. Work will be delivered using off-peak traffic signals between 9.30am and 3.30pm and again between 8pm and 6am each day.

A66 Appleby

A £1.76 million carriageway reconstruction project near Crackenthorpe began yesterday (1 October) and will last until Sunday 20 December. Temporary traffic lights will be in place from next week – manually controlled during the day – and a 40mph speed limit will also be in place past the road works.
