Eden Bridge road near Penrith closed for two weeks

A road near Penrith will be closed to motorists for two weeks from today while permanent traffic signals are installed.

Diversions will be put in place while the work is carried out on the B6413 between Lazonby and Kirkoswald at Eden Bridge. Cumbria County Council will be working with Telent Ltd to install cables across the bridge along with traffic signals and mains power to the site.

Minor repairs to the surface and work on oak trees on the grass verge will also be carried out while the road is closed.

A signed diversion route will be in place via the A6 and Armathwaite bridge. Pedestrians and dismounted cyclists can continue to use the bridge and access will remain open to the recycling area and swimming pool from Lazonby.

A spokesman for Cumbria County Council said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused due to the road closure. Unfortunately, due to the limited width it is not possible to safely install the signals while keeping the road open to vehicles.”
