Progress report

We've completed all of our weekend work on the A66 between Penrith and Brough - we thank everyone for their patience while this essential work was carried out.

We were able to recover from the bad weather brought to the area by Storm Callum and complete the weekend work on time.

The investment of £5 million to reconstruct and resurface a single carriageway section of road between Low Moor and Kirkby Thore, as well as resurfacing in six other locations between Penrith and Long Marton junction, means the A66 is fit for the future.

We'd love to get your feedback on how we did. Please take this opportunity to respond to our survey, which should only take a few minutes to complete.

Aims

The improvements aim to:
  • provide a newly constructed carriageway to modern standards
  • reduce the noise and vibration from the carriageway for the local community
  • improve resilience so that journeys are as reliable as possible

This scheme is not to be confused with the Northern trans-Pennine project, which aims to create a new strategic corridor linking the M6 at Penrith and A1 at Scotch Corner in the longer term.
