Workington road will close for resurfacing

Roadworks which will close part of a main route through Workington are set to start on Monday.

A 675-yard section of Mossbay Road and Solway Road is due to shut for resurfacing.

Improvements will also be made to traffic islands.

Traffic will be diverted via Lillyhall.

Pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will be able to get through at all times.

A council spokesman said access to Asda in Moss Bay would be maintained throughout the work, with access to nearby properties available except when large scale works are taking place.

Meanwhile, a £925,000 scheme will also be carried out on the town’s Cockfield Drive in Westfield, from Monday for Northern Gas Networks to replace about five miles of ageing metal gas mains.

Engineers will replace them with plastic pipes and it is expected the work will take about three months.

Shops and businesses will remain open as usual and every effort will be made to minimise any disruption to residents, businesses and motorists.

Barry Watson, of Northern Gas Networks, said: “We have planned our work closely with Cumbria County Council, to minimise disruption to both residents and motorists.

“In advance of the work taking place, a letter has been sent to local residents.”
