A590 Cross-a-Moor junction improvement scheme
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 National Highways, this is a collaborative venture between ourselves and Cumbria County Council, South Lakes District Council and Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership.
The £9.5m scheme will help to reduce congestion and improve safety, as well as support over 1000 new homes being built. In addition to this, we will also:
- construct a new wetland area to ease flooding in Swarthmoor. Around the wetland area, a pedestrian footpath and seating will be installed, creating a recreational site for the community
- improve bio-diversity by planting a variety of species including native hedgerow
