The route in detail
A number of sections of the A66 has been upgraded or bypassed since the 1970’s, and we will now upgrade the remaining single carriageway sections to provide a consistent standard or journey between Penrith and Scotch Corner.
We are now consulting on the route. We want your opinions on our proposals for M6 junction 40 Kemplay Bank, Penrith to Temple Sowerby, Temple Sowerby to Appleby (Kirkby Thore), Temple Sowerby to Appleby (Crackenthorpe), Appleby to Brough, Bowes Bypass, Cross Lanes to Rokeby, Stephen Bank to Carkin Moor and he major junctions at M6 junction 40 and Scotch Corner.
