A592 – Kirkstone Pass: FULL road closure from Monday 6 March

Kirkstone Pass will be the next phase of the Department for Transport (DfT) ‘Safer Roads Project’.

The project will focus on a 6.8km section of the A592 between Brothers Water on the northern end and Hird Wood on the southern end.

The first planned road closure is scheduled for Monday 6 March to Friday 31 March, weather permitting.  This will be a 24-hour, seven days a week closure, between Brothers Water and the Kirkstone Inn.  The Kirkstone Inn will remain accessible throughout this closure period via Windermere or Ambleside. Sykeside Camping Park and Brotherswater Inn will remain accessible throughout the closures via Glenridding.

Additional road closures will then take place on the following dates, weather permitting. More information on road diversions will be available nearer the time of each closure:

  • 5 June 2023 to install the first part of the safety crash barriers – a four-week closure
  • 11 September 2023 to carry out resurfacing – over a two-week closure
  • 1 March 2024 to finalise the resurfacing – a three-week closure

A massive thank you to the community and businesses for their continued support and patience while we improve the highway network. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused by these improvements.
