M6 gets £330k safety improvements

A £330,000 scheme to improve safety on the M6 in Cumbria by upgrading the central reserve barriers between Penrith and Carlisle will start Monday 14 January.

The existing barriers will be strengthened and improved between Junction 41 and 42 over a 10-week period.

All the work will be carried out overnight, between 8pm and 6am, with at least one lane of the motorway remaining open in both directions to minimise disruption to road users.

Highways Agency project manager Bob Clark said: "This is an important scheme to upgrade the existing central reserve and improve safety on the route."
