£180,000 improvement works to commence on A6 Junction 42 roundabout during May

Cumbria County Council’s Highways department will be carrying out repairs to the carriageway on the A6, Junction 42 roundabout during May.

To complete the works safely, it will be necessary to implement a temporary traffic lights system with a convoy vehicle to escort traffic through the works. Closures to the adjoining slip road junctions will also be necessary.  All works will be carried out during evening hours (7pm - 6am).

The works, valued at £180,000 are scheduled to commence from Monday 10 May for seven nights (not including weekends), with all works due to be completed by the morning of Wednesday 19 May. 

The schedule of works is detailed below (all works carried out between 7pm and 6am):

Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 May - Southbound A6 exit slip closed / Northbound M6 exit slip closed.

Wednesday 12 May - Southbound A6 exit slip closed / Northbound A6 entrance slip closed / C1014 road to Durdar closed / Northbound M6 exit slip closed / Southbound entrance slip closed.

Signed diversions will be in place on each night.

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

“These essential improvement works will improve the condition of the road surface, making it safer for drivers. Investment in maintaining a reliable and safe network is a key priority of the council’s highways department, and I thank local residents and drivers in advance for their patience and cooperation.

“We understand that the works may cause some temporary disruption, and I would ask that you liaise with site staff if you have concerns or access issues.”
