[T]he eastbound A66 between Crosthwaite roundabout and Briery interchange north of Keswick will be closed tomorrow night (Saturday 17 September) between 8pm and 6am as part of the £500,000 resurfacing work in the area. This will be followed next Saturday (24 September) by the closure of the westbound carriageway – again between 8pm and 6am – from the interchange to the roundabout.
The closures are part of a 4 week project which was detailed in this recent news release: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/smoother-journeys-for-a66-drivers-north-of-keswick
Drivers heading eastbound after 8pm tomorrow night will need to leave the A66 at Crosthwaite roundabout and head into Keswick and then onto the eastbound Penrith Road to rejoin the A66 at Briery interchange. The same diversion route will operate in reverse during next weekend’s overnight closure of the westbound carriageway which will also include the interchange slip road.
High and wide loads, unable to use the diversion routes, will be stopped prior to the works and advised of their options.
Drivers are advised to check traffic conditions before setting out on journeys while queues from the full closure clear.
