DRIVERS using the M6 around Tebay are being advised that work will be taking place next month to modify the central reservation to make future bridge repairs safer and easier.

The £450,000 project is being delivered near Castle Howe bridge just north of junction 38 of the motorway and will take place between Saturday, September 13 and Monday, October 13.

The roadworks will need a round-the-clock closure of lane three of the motorway in both directions and some overnight closures of lane two along the southbound carriageway.
