17/1/2017 - Resurfacing works in Ambleside

Cumbria County Council will be carrying out essential road maintenance work in Ambleside at the beginning of next month.

The works will involve replacing worn-out sections of road with a brand new, hard-wearing surface.

The works have been scheduled for early February to minimise disruption to road users and some of the resurfacing will be carried out during the off-peak evening period.

Some temporary road closures will be required to enable these works to be safely carried out and signed local diversions will be in place. Residents and businesses in the affected areas have been informed of the works and 'business as usual' signs will be in place throughout. In addition, access to properties will be maintained but limited from time to time so members of the community are being asked to take account of resurfacing works and plan their journeys as much as possible.

Assuming reasonable weather, the resurfacing is scheduled to take place as follows:


Wednesday 1 February: Lake Road outside Hayes Garden Centre - Evening Works from 6.15pm- midnight

Thursday 2 February: Kelsick Road / Lake Road Junction - Evening Works from 6.15pm - midnight

Friday 3 February: A591 Adjacent to Bridge House - Evening Works from 6.15pm - midnight (2-way traffic diversion on Rothay Road )

Monday 6 February - Friday 10 February: Lake Road (Mountain Rescue to and including Wansfell Road) - Daytime working

Monday 13 February & Tuesday 14 February: Lake Road (Old Lake Road to Wansfell Road) - Daytime works
