A590 Lindal Roadworks Feb 17

Work has commenced to raise the carriageway and improve drainage to deal with the flooding at Lindal in Furness.

As the work is extensive, it will involve 24 hour traffic lights and speed limits, at some times there may also be a convoy system.   Works will continue overnight and are expected to last approximately six weeks from 11th February 2017.

The existing road is being realigned by up to 7m and raised by up to 1.9m in height.     In the latter period of the works there may be some night time closures of the lane to Marton.
