Carlisle city centre road junction to close for repairs

A busy Carlisle city centre junction is to be closed for resurfacing work.

But work on Victoria Place – at its junction with Georgian Way – is to be carried out overnight to minimise disruption for drivers.

Cumbria County Council estimates that the upgrade, starting on Monday, will take three nights.

The scheme is the latest in a string of road improvements in and around the city, including resurfacing Hardwicke Circus.

Work at Victoria Place will be carried out between 7pm and 6am on each night and the Victoria Place/Georgian Way/Spencer Street junction will be closed to traffic.

A signed diversion route – via the A69, A7 and A595 – will be in place on each night. A way will be maintained for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists.

Traffic will run as normal during the day.

A county council spokesman said: “Work of this nature is likely to be noisy at times and, while the council will try to keep the noise to a minimum wherever possible, we apologise for any inconvenience to residents.

“It is not feasible to carry out the works during daytime because of the sensitive location on a main route into Carlisle.”
