DRIVERS using the M6 through Cumbria are being advised that the northbound exit slip road at junction 39 at Shap will close overnight for up to a week from today.

The closures are being made for routine resurfacing work in a £79,000 Highways Agency project.

Road markings will also be refreshed during the work which will take place between 8pm and 6am each night with the work being completed next Thursday.
