Traffic information

West Cumbria Water Supply Project

The majority of our new water pipeline for the project 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 for our planned work and any diversion routes are clearly posted to help direct traffic safely around our working areas. Where it is safe to do so we will try to maintain pedestrian access through our closures, but this may not always be possible.

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.

Brigham road off the A66 near to St Bridget's church

We've completed temporary road resurfacing following our work which was carried out earlier in July.  The team will return to carry out a permanent surface once the C2065 High Brigham Road work is completed and the road closure has been removed.



There is a slip lane closure on the A66 east bound heading out of Keswick.  This work is being carried out by Highways England and is not part of our West Cumbria Water Supplies Project.
