A66 road closure at Keswick tomorrow night and the following Saturday night

A SECTION of the A66 in Cumbria is set to be closed tomorrow night and again a week tomorrow.

The eastbound A66 between Crosthwaite roundabout and Briery interchange north of Keswick will be closed tomorrow evening (Saturday 17 September) between 8pm and 6am as part of the £500,000 resurfacing work in the area.

This will be followed next Saturday (24 September) by the closure of the westbound carriageway – again between 8pm and 6am – from the interchange to the roundabout.

Drivers heading eastbound during the closure period after 8pm tomorrow night will need to leave the A66 at Crosthwaite roundabout and head into Keswick and then onto the eastbound Penrith Road to rejoin the A66 at Briery interchange.

The same diversion route will operate in reverse during next weekend’s overnight closure of the westbound carriageway which will also include the interchange slip road.

Drivers are advised by the authorities to check traffic conditions before setting out on journeys while queues from the full closure clear.
