Information for Drivers

Skip main menu

This section of the website is designed to help those people who drive in or through Cumbria.

You will find some basic advice for driving in winter conditions and a copy of our leaflet 'Glovebox guide to winter driving in Cumbria', which outlines the road gritting sequence. Car parking information is provided, including links to district authority websites. Under local road works you will find schedules of planned road works, both for Cumbria Highways and public utilities. There is also a link to the local travel section of the BBC website.

A major road safety campaign has been launched in Cumbria. Using the banner 'It Wouldn't Kill You', the Cumbria Road Safety Partnership is promoting its safe driver scheme. See the link for details.
