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.”
