Construction of a new dual carriageway to realign the A590 away from Ayside, High Newton and Low Newton. Consideration will also be given to full dualling of the A590 from Lindale to Barrow.
This scheme was completed in and we're no longer accepting updates or changes to this page.
Work is due to start this summer.
Signs are up on site to confirm that work is now under way. The start of work ceremony was performed by the youngest and oldest residents of High and Low Newton, 11 and 88 respectively!
The halfway point is reached to much fanfare from the local press, who excitedly describe the three miles of dual carriageway as 'mammoth'.
The new road is officially opened on April 8th.
