JUNCTION 36 of the M6 will be partially closed from 4pm this Saturday until 6pm on Sunday.

Cumbria County Council (CCC) have advised that the closure is necessary as they are undertaking programmed and essential resurfacing works on the link from the M6 to the A65.

There will be no direct access to or from the M6 from the A65 during these hours.

However, CCC advise that all other routes, including A roads, will be open and motorists will be able to use junction 36 to access the A590 via the junction and can also join the M6 from the A590.

All motorists are asked to allow extra time for their journeys.
