A66 upgrade comes a step closer



A billion pound upgrade of one of Cumbria’s busiest roads has moved a step closer.


ITV reports that plans are being developed to fully dual the A66 between Penrith and Scotch Corner, and National Highways has now submitted a development application to the Planning Inspectorate.


An examination is expected to start in the autumn and take six-months, with a decision from the Secretary of State for Transport being given by the end of next year.


If approved, work could begin in 2024.


The report says Cumbria County Council has promoted the need to invest in the east-west road network over recent years.
