Drivers face a month of disruption at Carlisle’s busiest junction.

And the £250,000 roadworks scheme at Hardwicke Circus will see some traffic sent the wrong way around the roundabout.

Cumbria County Council will start resurfacing the road there from Monday, July 21.

But the work will be carried out at night to cut the amount of disruption for motorists.

Overnight roadworks are also to be carried out on the A689 on the outskirts of Carlisle from the middle of the month.

Keith Little, the county councillor responsible for highways, said: “We are improving key parts of the road network in Carlisle this summer.

“With so much planned maintenance work taking place, the council will be working with our contractors to do all we can to keep traffic moving as smoothly as possible, but some short-term disruption is inevitable and we apologise for any inconvenience.

“Once the work is completed, road users will see the difference on these roads.”

At Hardwicke Circus, work will be carried out between 7pm and 6am.

Traffic control measures will include some lane closures and diverting traffic in an anti-clockwise direction around the roundabout.

All temporary traffic controls, lane closures and diversions will be lifted during the day.

Connect Roads, who maintain some A roads in north Cumbria for the council, will be carrying out the work on the A689.

Sections of road will be closed from 7pm to 6am with diversions in place.

Local traffic will be diverted on to local roads while HGVs will be diverted via the A69, M6 junction 43 at Rosehill and HardwickeCircus.

No. It's already clear we're not part of it

Only if we speak up and demand to be involved
