Information from National Highways –
National Highways is replacing a stone wall along the A590 Ulverston Road near Swarthmoor that has fallen into disrepair.
Not acting to ensure the integrity of the wall will risk the smooth operation of the network and the safety of road users.
The replacement wall will be built from a modular block wall design, in keeping with its existing stone style. This innovative form of construction will reduce the need for maintenance on this section of the A590 in the future.
Our essential renewal work will take approximately six weeks and will start on Monday 6 November, completing by the end of the year.
To undertake the work safely, two-way traffic lights will be required overnight, from 9pm to 6am, to control traffic along a 100-metre-long section of the A590, near Dykelands, to the north of Swarthmoor.
We always aim to work to our schedule, but unforeseen circumstances such as severe weather conditions may mean slight changes occur at short notice. We’d like to apologise in advance for any disturbance this improvement work may cause.
