Decorative - WndermereHow our work may affect you

We understand roadworks are inconvenient

Thank you for your patience while we carried out our first season of work along the A592.  Our teams have been busy completing other elements of the project at Windermere Wastewater Treatment Works during the peak tourism period and will be starting our second season of work on the A592 in November 2017.

We recognise the sensitivity of the location where we’re working, so by carrying out our highway work out of season we hope this will minimise the impact for residents, businesses and tourists.

Season 1: Completed November 2016 – April 2017
Season 2: November 2017 – April 2018
Season 3: November 2018 – April 2019

Our season 2 work

We'll need to put traffic management (map pdf 288KB opens in a new window)  in place to carry out our season 2 work.  This will involve traffic lights from November, a section of road closure on the A592 from January until Easter 2018, along with a full closure of the Glebe Road car park. 

Ferry Nab car park

We’re currently carrying out some work within Ferry Nab car park.  The car park is still open, however there is a reduction in available car parking spaces. We expect this work will be completed by the end of October 2017.


Our highway work on the A592 will start in November 2017 near Moor Crag. 

There will be traffic lights at the following locations which will have a 10mph speed restriction in place around our working areas. The traffic lights will be removed in time for the Christmas period.

  • Moor Crag to Greenacres
  • Ferry Nab Road (junction A592/B5285) to outside Windermere Marina (starts January 2018)
  • Outside Cannon Close to south of Middle Entrance Drive (January 2018)
  • Old Mill Crescent to outside Beech Cottage (January 2018)

After the Christmas and New Year break there will be a road closure between the Beech Hill Hotel car park and Moor Crag until Easter 2018. The same diversion route used in season 1 will help direct traffic around our working area via the A590/A591. The closure will be lifted during the February half term school break and then put back for the remainder of our season 2 work (Easter 2018).


Glebe Road car park

From January 2018 we’ll be carrying out connections at our pumping station in Glebe Road car park.  For safety we need to close the entire car park until Easter 2018. We understand this will be inconvenient and we’re working with our stakeholders to look at the possibility of securing alternative nearby parking.


Making way for the new sewer pipeline

Other utility companies will also be working during November/December to move underground pipes and cables on the A592.

Thank you for bearing with us while we carry out our work.
