County council succeeds in securing government support for Grizebeck

In response to today's announcement regarding the Major Roads Network investment, Cumbria County Council has issued the following statement.

Cllr Keith Little, Cabinet member for Highways and Transport, said: 

“This is great news for Cumbria and we welcome it. Cumbria County Council has been proactively lobbying government to secure essential  funding to improve this road and we are very pleased that the government has now listened to us. The Grizebeck bypass is a really important scheme for Cumbria and for its communities and businesses and the county council has undertaken significant work already to start developing a potential scheme which it has been proactively promoting to the Department of Transport and Transport for the North.

"The next step is for Cumbria County Council to prepare and launch a public consultation to ensure that the very best scheme is now developed going forward. We look forward to working with the Department for Transport and Transport for the North as plans progress to deliver this important infrastructure upgrade.”
