Whitehaven Road Closures

In addition to the closure of Inkerman Terrace to Northbound traffic from yesterday for up to give weeks, there are a number of other road closures around Whitehaven at the moment.

Cleator Moor Road is also closed this week at the Whitehaven end: Cumbria County Council will be carrying out resurfacing at a cost of £185,000, along a mile-long stretch of the B5295.

Copeland Pool and Fitness Centre, which is on Cleator Moor Road, said it will remain open but asked users to set off early in case of tailbacks.

Around 500 people a week use the pool for lessons and general sessions. The school summer holidays are one of their busiest times.

Cumbria County Council's Cabinet member for Highways, said the resurfacing works had been timed to take place during the summer holiday period to minimise disruption.
"We will be working hard with our contractor to get the job done as soon as possible but there will inevitably be some disruption and we would advise drivers to plan ahead and allow extra time for journeys,'' he said.
