A66 public consultation launches this month

Highways England has announced it is launching a public consultation on the A66 Northern Trans-Pennine project.

Plans are in place to improve the A66 between the M6 at Penrith and A1 at Scotch Corner. The project will involve upgrading single carriageway sections of road to dual carriageway standard and making improvements to the junctions along the route.

Members of the public and other stakeholders will be able to see the newly developed designs and proposals for the first time on Friday 24 September 2021.

There are a number of ways you can get involved, including:

  • Online virtual consultation
  • Public information events
  • Webinars
  • Telephone surgery

A number of face-to-face consultation events are taking place across Eden in September and October. You can see the full list of events and dates at bit.ly/3n9Myfl.
