Located at the A590 Ulverston Road and Main Road junction, we plan to delivery a highway improvement project called A590 Cross-a-Moor.
The scheme will entail constructing a new roundabout. We will also build brand new link roads, which will connect into the existing local road network. As part of the scheme we will also carry out environmental improvements and put in measures to alleviate flooding in the area.
View our graphic to see what the new highway improvements will look like.
While the scheme is being delivered by Highways England, this is a collaborative venture between Highways England, Cumbria County Council, South Lakes District Council and Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership.
The purpose of this scheme is to improve congestion currently being experienced at this location as well as improving safety. The £7m infrastructure investment is part of the Housing and Growth agenda and will also support the creation of 900 new homes.
