Over £1m to be spent resurfacing South Cumbria roads
More than £1m will be spent on resurfacing roads across South Lakeland over the next two months.
The Cumbria-wide project is valued at almost £4m and will take place during June and July.
Cumbria County Council said the works will address surface issues at more 100 individual sites across the county to help keep Cumbria moving.
Over £1.03 million will go to roads in South Lakeland, meanwhile £275,000 is earmarked for surface dressing work on Barrow’s roads.
Cllr Keith Little, the county council’s cabinet member for highways, said: “This essential package of road maintenance works will replace worn-out sections of routes across the county with a new, hard-wearing road surface, making journeys much smoother for drivers.
“We recognise the importance of the road network in Cumbria and the resurfacing works will be coordinated to minimise disruption and delays. There may be some disruption and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience. We would ask drivers to plan ahead.”
