A590 roadworks to bring delays for road users
Last updated at 14:27, Thursday, 16 February 2012
MOTORISTS face delays when roadworks start next week.
The Highways Agency will carry out two road resurfacing projects in Ulverston and Lindale Hill.
From Monday a £133,000 project starts to resurface the eastbound dual carriageway of the A590 at Lightburn Road between its junctions with Princes Street and Daltongate, west of Ulverston.
The work, which is due to be completed by March 7, will take place between 8pm and 6am. Traffic will be held at temporary signals and led through the roadworks in 10mph convoys.
The layby in the westbound carriageway west of Daltongate will close while the works are taking place and signed diversions will be put in place.
There will be no right turns from the A590 onto Daltongate and Lightburn Road and westbound into the gap east of Daltongate, and no right turn access from Daltongate onto the A590.
The second project will take place at Lindale Hill, from February 27, where both lanes of the dual carriageway in both directions will be resurfaced.
The £123,000 scheme will take place between the Meathorp Roundabout and the exit slip into Lindale village, and should be completed by March 1.
The work will be carried out using single lane closures between midday and 8pm, with a 50mph speed limit in place. The overnight work between 8pm and 6am will require convoy working.
Peter Gee, of the Highways Agency, said: “The existing surface of the carriageway in both these locations is near the end of its serviceable life and will be replaced with new, quieter and safer surfacing. This work will ensure that users of the strategic road network in this part of Cumbria will continue to enjoy safe, smooth and reliable journeys.
“We have timed this work to take place overnight or during daytime off-peak hours and during the winter months when traffic volumes are at their lowest.
“We do not anticipate long delays for road users but those planning to travel overnight should leave a little extra time for journeys and be prepared to encounter some queuing at temporary traffic lights for convoy working.”
