County council agrees £1 million for Cumbria road upgrades

More than £1 million is set to be spent on road upgrades in Cumbria.

The county council’s cabinet agreed the funding at it first meeting since the new Labour-Liberal Democrat coalition was formed.

Most of it – £670,000 – is set to go on improving A-road surfaces.

Another £382,000 is being spent on work on six bridges in the county. One each is in Eden and South Lakeland, whilst the rest are in Copeland.

Another £300,000 will be spent on 23 projects designed to make roads with bad crash records safer.

This includes installing an anti-skid surface at the Thursby roundabout on the A595.

Keith Little, the portfolio holder for highways said: “The county council is investing in Cumbria’s highways to make them safer and more robust.”
