The following roadworks will be taking place in Cumbria next week:
A £1.76 million carriageway reconstruction project near Crackenthorpe began in mid-October and will last until Sunday 20 December. Temporary traffic lights are in place – manually controlled during the day – and a 40mph speed limit will also be in place past the road works.
A66 Bassenthwaite Lake
A programme of work to update safety cameras and carry out rock face protection started on Tuesday 2 September – with the westbound carriageway closed and a contraflow system in operation using a lane on the eastbound carriageway.
A £500,000 project to remove a bottleneck west of Penrith was due to be completed on Sunday (8 November). The work will now be completed by Monday 23 November. The work has involved widening the single lane carriageway to incorporate two new dedicated right turns into businesses on either side of the road – reducing queuing and shunt-style collisions.
