Work is being carried out on traffic barriers along the M6 in Cumbria in order to enhance the safety of road users.

A total of £75,000 is being spent on the project, which aims to plug short gaps in the hard shoulder safety barrier between Junction 39 of the motorway at Shap and Junction 42 near Carlisle.

Motorists can expect to see the work being carried out on November 21st and December 4th.

Highways Agency project sponsor Peter Gee said: "Sections of M6 verge which have no protection at present to stop vehicles from leaving the nearside carriageway will now be protected by new vehicle restraint safety barriers."

Drivers are advised that the work should not affect their journeys, but it will require the closure of the hard shoulder and lane one along sections of the motorway.

The Highways Agency recently offered advice on driving safely this winter, which included checking traffic reports before heading out.
