One of Carlisle's key routes will be closed for 15 nights in order for repairs to be carried out.

The work will take place on the A595, Wigton Road, between the roundabout at Church Street and the junction to Bower Street.

Cumbria County Council's highways team said road needs to be closed in order for the worked to be safely carried out.

The road closure will be in place for 15 nights from Monday, November 15, between 7pm and 6am, excluding weekends.

A signed diversion on the A689 bypass route will be put in place and access to residential properties during the works will be granted, coordinated by traffic marshals who will be on site at the closure points.
