A595 Moresby embankment work - new public meetings now rescheduled

As I reported here a few weeks ago, National Highways has profusely apologised for the fact that letters advertising to local residents the details of public engagement meetings to inform people about proposed improvement work on the Moresby Embankment section of the A595 (just North of Whitehaven) went out far too late. Most of the letters arrived after all but one of the events had already happened.

National Highways responded quickly to requests to reschedule these events so that members of the public could attend and promised that they would do so.

New letters have now gone out with details of the rescheduled meetings, which are also given on the National Highways website.

The new public engagement events will take place as follows:

  • Monday 7 November – The Beacon Museum, West Strand, Whitehaven CA28 7LY
  • Wednesday 9 November – Cleator Moor Civic Hall & Masonic Centre, Jacktrees Road, Cleator Moor CA25 5AU
  • Thursday 10 November – Gosforth Public Hall, Gosforth, Seascale CA20 1A
  • Friday 11 November – Workington Town Council Community Centre, Princess St, Workington CA14 2QG

On each of the above dates there will be three drop-in sessions throughout the day: from 11am to 12pm, 2pm to 3pm and 6pm to 7pm.

National Highways have promised that as the project progresses there will be further opportunities to speak with the project team.

Details of these events, along with an overview of the scheme and details of the proposed phasis of the scheme, benefits and Archaeology, can be found on the National Highways Website by clicking on the link below.
