Cumbria County Council intends to carry out night time resurfacing works to the A7 Scotland Road / Kingstown Road, starting on Tuesday 29 August and expected to last 9 nights (excluding weekends).
The works will be carried out between 7pm and 6am under temporary traffic lights. The approximate cost of these works is £200,000.
The works will be carried out in three phases:
- The main works between Bannatynes gym and the Lowry Hill traffic lights will likely cause the most disruption, expected to take 7 nights to complete.
- The Northbound and Southbound approaches to the Lowry Hill pedestrian crossing, expected to take one night to complete.
- The Northbound approach to the Kingstown pedestrian crossing and the parking bays outside Kingstown Post Office, expected to take one night.
The council understands the inconvenience night time works can cause to residents and businesses and is grateful for the understanding and patience of the local community whilst these vital highway improvement works are carried out. Every effort will be made to keep disruption to a minimum.
If you would like to discuss these works in more detail, please contact the Carlisle Highways Network team by telephone on 0300 303 2992.
