Decorative - WndermereHow our work may affect you


We understand roadworks are inconvenient and we would like to thank you for your patience while we've been working along the A592. We recognise the sensitivity of the location where we’re working and have programmed road closures to take place out of season to minimise the impact for residents, businesses and tourists.  Our team have now started our third season of work.

Season 1: Completed November 2016 – April 2017
Season 2: Completed November 2017 – April 2018
Season 3: Late October 2018 – End of March 2019

Our work on the A592

Temporary traffic lights: We currently have temporary traffic lights in place at several points on the A592. The location of the lights will move along as our work progresses. To help keep our site team and the public safe we have reduced the number of traffic light points and also introduced a 'follow me' system to escort traffic through the lights while we are working. Our team will remove the traffic management for the Christmas break on Friday 21 December.

Temporary road closure: Our season three road closure (Map PDF 98KB opens in a new window) will start from Monday 7 January.  The team will be working between High Ghyll and approximately 500 metres south of the Beech Hill Hotel.  We're also carrying out road resurfacing on other sections where we've installed the new pipeline. The road closures will be in place until late March, but will be temporarily lifted during the February school half-term break (15th - 24th February).  A signed diversion will direct traffic via the A590/A591 and our team will be working 7 days a week during the closure to get this work completed as quickly as possible.

Glebe Road car park: We still need to carry out some elements of work with the car park which is expected to take place later in 2019.

Beech Hill car park

We're using the car park to store our equipment which means the car park will be closed for public use. The picnic area will remain open to pedestrians, although the public toilets will be closed.

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