Have your say about Carlisle 'bypass' route

Drop-in sessions will be held this week for members of the public to give their views on the new Carlisle bypass.

Two sessions will take place to give people the chance to discuss how the Northern Development Route has affected their communities.

The first, covering the western area of the city, will be held in the Church of the Nazarene hall, Moorhouse Road, on Wednesday from 4pm to 7pm. The second, covering the northern area, will be held in Stanwix Primary School hall, Church Street, on Thursday, also from 4pm to 7pm.

Issues include future developments for pedestrians and cycleway links, traffic calming measures and the effect on local traffic.

Everyone is welcome to attend the sessions where staff from Cumbria County Council and Connect Roads will be available to talk.

Tony Markley, county council cabinet member for highways, said: “The CNDR was a multi-million pound project, and has aimed to alleviate traffic going through the city centre.

“We are also aware that with this brings the impact of a potential increase in traffic elsewhere, and it’s important that we ask local residents if there has in fact been an increase.”

No. It'll bring too many restrictions. It won't help anything

I'm still to be convinced. Need to know more about the benefits
