Road improvements in Barrow town centre are set to continue next week with reconstruction and resurfacing work on Market Street.
On Monday (March 8) a £150,000 revamp, that will take place in three phases and last for around a month, is due to get underway.
The work is a continuation of the Cornwallis Street/Lawson Street improvements that started in early January and will replace worn carriageway and enhance the surface of the road.
An initial relatively short phase of one day will provide a temporarily widened access at the police station.
Phase two, taking place between the Town Hall and the Market Street car park opposite the council offices, involves major resurfacing to improve the carriageway.
The phase three resurfacing will take place directly outside the car park/council offices.
The Market Street car park will remain open during the work with drivers using a temporary exit onto Cornwallis Street. Access into the car park will be maintained from Market Street.
Phases two and three involve closing the sections of road that are being worked on and signed diversions will be in place.
Cumbria Highways apologises for any inconvenience these essential works may cause but every effort is being made to keep disruption to a minimum.
This work in Market Street is just one part of Cumbria County Councilís continued commitment to enhancing Barrow alongside the transformation of the Dalton Road area, improvements to Abbey Road and the creation of a new link road.
