Study into possible Whitehaven by-pass commissioned

Cumbria County Council has agreed to commission a £60,000 study whose remit includes an investigation of the potential for a relief road for Whitehaven.

The study will take about six month. Also taking place at the same time will be investigations to explore what improvements can be made to parts of the A595, A66 and A590.

The study, a joint project with Highways England and Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership, will look at issues such as traffic flow and value for money.

Findings will be submitted to Highways England and Transport for the North as part of wider work to identify transport priorities for 2020-2025.
