The following projects are part of the A590 maintenance programme:

From: Early September 2020   To: December 2020

We plan to deliver a number of maintenance and improvement schemes on the A590, between M6 junction 36 and Brettargh Holt roundabout. Together they will ensure safer, more reliable journeys for years to come.

View our leaflet more information about these improvements..

Planned traffic management from 24 September to 3 October:

  • A590 eastbound between M6 junction 36 roundabout and Brettargh Holt roundabout (phase 3) – 24 hour contraflow will be in place

View the location plan of the work (phase 3)

Some delays are expected. Road users are advised to check their journeys before travel, and where possible use alternative routes.

From: 7 September 2020   To: Early October

Carriageway surfacing and road marking replacement work is due to take place on the A590 through Ulverston Town Centre. Over time the carriageway has deteriorated and needs replacing. Longer and harder-wearing material is being used to resurface the A590 between the junctions of Quebec Street and Prince’s Street/Queen Street crossroads. In addition to this, we’ll also replace the road markings through to the junction of Daltongate.

Work is due to start on or shortly after 7 September for approximately five weeks. This will take place between the hours of 8pm and 6am.

For safety, temporary traffic lights will be in place on the A590 between the junctions of Quebec Street and Daltongate during the dates and time stated above. In addition to this, overnight full closures are required on the 20 and 27 September and 4 October. Localised signed diversion routes will be in place.

Work is subject to weather conditions and therefore dates may change at short notice. Our work will inevitably generate some noise and every effort will be made to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.
