A590 maintenance schemes

The A590 is a trunk road in southern Cumbria, in the north-west of England. It connects the M6 (from junction 36) with the Furness peninsula, and passes through the towns of Ulverston and Barrow-in-Furness.

We’re investing approximately £8 million over the next 12 months, maintaining journeys and safety for the thousands of drivers who use the A590 every day.

Along the full length of the A590 we’ll be carrying out a number of planned renewal schemes. These are essential in maintaining the network, keeping our customers safe and supporting the movement of essential supplies and services. While there are several projects planned along this 34 mile stretch, we’re working together to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.
