Traffic information

The majority of our new water pipeline will be constructed within agricultural land, however there are some points where the pipes cross roads and water courses.

We understand roadworks are inconvenient, and our teams will be working as quickly as possible to ensure any disruption is kept to a minimum.  We’ll ensure signs provide advance warning and any diversion routes are clearly posted to help direct traffic safely around our working areas.

We’re currently working at the following locations and have road closures or traffic management in place.  Thank you for your patience while our teams are working on the road.  If you have any queries please get in touch on 0345 672 3723

Current roadworks

Refurbishing existing water pipeline - 03 Junction of Hardygate with Nepgill Park Traffic lights

The road closure at the junction of Hardygate with Nepgill Park has now been removed, but we still need to have traffic lights in place.  We also have temporary traffic lights near Derwent View.  All traffic management will be removed in time for the Christmas period.

New raw water pipeline - 01 A591 near Dodd Wood, Keswick Road closure

Starting Monday 30 October - up to 6 weeks

Safety is our priority and therefore we're unable to maintain access for pedestrians and cyclists. During the closure we've arranged for a free mini-bus shuttle to connect with the 554 bus service.  The shuttle will run Monday - Saturday between the The Old Sawmill Tearoom via Bassenthwaite village to the Castle Inn (PDF 74KB opens in a new window).
