Drivers urged to watch out for A66 roadworks near Brough

Drivers using the A66 are being advised to watch out for drainage works which will take place for most of next month.

Around a mile of the dual carriageway between the Augill junction and Borrowbeck Beck, a mile from Brough, will be affected by the work, which starts on September 3. It involves carrying out drain surveys along the road and spot checks on any problems.

The road will remain open but there will be lane closures on both carriageways so the work can be carried out safely. The speed limit will be cut to 50mph.

Highways Agency project sponsor Peter Gee said it was a routine inspection.

He added: “It is to ensure that users of the A66 in this part of Cumbria can continue to enjoy safe, smooth and reliable journeys without being delayed by flooding.

“We are not anticipating any delays for road users but drivers should heed the reduced speed limit past any lane closures for their own safety and for the safety of our roadworkers.”

The work is scheduled to finish on September 30.
