DRIVERS in and around Copeland will have a National Highways road closure to watch out for this week.

But motorists will be able to take some solace in the fact that it is only expected to cause slight delays, of under 10 minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that one closure is due to start over the next two weeks:

• A595, from 9am July 8 to 4pm July 9, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A595 eastbound and westbound, Calderbridge to Blackbeck roundabout, traffic signals for communications works.

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
