 NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that to enable Cumbria Highways to carry out surface dressing works  (“the Works”), the County Council of Cumbria intends to make an Order the effect of which is to prohibit any vehicle from proceeding along the lengths of road specified in the attached Schedule.

 Suitable diversion routes will be indicated on site by the display of relevant traffic signs as and when the temporary closures are in force.

 Phased works will not necessarily be done in numerical order.

 Cumbria Highways will ensure that local residents and the general public are informed of which roads are to be closed and when, nearer the time.

 A way for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will be maintained at all times.

 Nothing in the Order to which this notice relates shall:

  1. Apply to emergency service vehicles, or vehicles being used by statutory undertakers in the performance of their duties; and
  2. Apply to anything done with the permission or at the direction of a police constable in uniform; and
