Major improvement works have started on the A590 at Lindal-in-Furness, and are due to complete by Friday 17th March 2017. These dates are subject to work proceeding as planned, and may need to be altered, for example due to bad weather. The road is to be re-aligned by up to 7 metres north of its current alignment, and raised in height by up to 1.9 metres. New drainage will be installed. Traffic management will be in place throughout the works, with a mandatory 30mph speed limit, and occasional reductions to 10mph. There will be several complete overnight closures of the A590, and occasional closures of the nearby junction with the lane leading to Marton.
