A595 | Cumbria | Road Closure | Expect Delays

The A595 is currently closed in both directions
from its junctions of the A5086 (Egremont) to the B5295 (Whitehaven) with delays of
at least 15 minutes covering several miles of the road. This closure is due
to a road traffic collision and Highways England has resources deployed
working hard to restore normal conditions as soon as possible.

For traffic approaching the closure locally, you are advised to expect
disruption with extra journey time and may potentially have to re-route your
journey.
If travelling towards this area from much farther afield, you may wish to
change your strategic route, allow extra travel time and follow guidance from
our on-road variable message signs and media.
Traffic is being diverted via local roads by the on-site police.
