Work will begin on the A66 Eden Valley schemes on Monday (3 September) for seven weeks until 22 October.
Works include reconstructing and resurfacing a single carriageway section of road between Low Moor and Kirkby Thore, as well as resurfacing in six other locations between Penrith and Long Marton junction.  In order to minimise inconvenience to road users we’re carrying out all of this work during a seven-week period and fitting in as much work as possible over the next few weeks. The package of works will reduce the amount of future road repairs between Penrith and Appleby over the next few years.
The full work programme is included in the attached leaflet which is being sent to around
20,000 homes ahead of the August bank holiday weekend. This leaflet also offers residents and motorists the chance to sign up for a free text alert service in order to stay up to date with the work.
This work is weather dependent and may be postponed due to wet or windy conditions.
Ensuring you are fully-informed on this project is important to us.  Highways England have a dedicated web page at where you can sign up for updates, further to the text alert service referenced above.  We are also sending out a press release to keep the public informed and will be issuing tweets from
