DRIVERS using the M6 between Shap and Penrith are being advised of lane closures from Monday as work gets under way to repair and maintain the central reservation barrier along an eight-mile stretch of the motorway.

The £250,000 Highways Agency project will be completed by March 30.

During the day, the outside lane in each direction will be closed with the middle lane of each carriageway also closed between 8pm and 6am each night.
