Drivers warned over safety work at west Cumbrian roundabouts
Last updated at 13:35, Wednesday, 12 December 2012
Motorists in Cumbria have been warned that safety improvements to roundabouts along Highways Agency routes will be taking place over the next few weeks.
The A66 Fitz roundabout, near Cockermouth and the A595 Hensingham roundabout, near Whitehaven, were having chevrons repainted as from next Monday.
The £5,000 project at the Fitz roundabout runs from next Monday until Thursday. Work at Hensingham takes place over the same days and resumes again on January 7 until January 11.
The Highways Agency said no work would take place during the Christmas and new year period.
Each scheme involves working between 8am and 5pm each day, but with the limited traffic management in place all of the time.
Highways Agency project sponsor Peter Gee said: “We are carrying out these minor works to make the chevron signing even clearer for drivers and therefore the roundabouts will be safer to use.
"Drivers should not experience any delays at all but of course may wish to know what work is going on. They should also exercise extra caution on the approach to the roundabouts in the event of having to use narrowed lanes.”
