Plans unveiled to revamp Carlisle's Castle Way

By Chris Story

Last updated at 12:50, Saturday, 29 August 2015

This is the vision to open up Carlisle’s historic heartland in an effort to right a 40-year wrong.

Plans have been unveiled to revamp Castle Way – breaking barriers between the castle and city centre, and creating new pedestrian crossings.

It’s a change that would mean another set of traffic lights on one of Carlisle’s busiest roads, but experts insist the impact on traffic will be minimal.

Carlisle City Council believes the toucan crossing, between Tullie House and the castle, will boost business and plug the missing link in a walking and cycling network from Dalston to the city’s most northerly point at Crindledyke.

It would be in addition to the Irishgate footbridge and Millennium underpass but council deputy leader Elsie Martlew, who is championing the plan, insists a street-level crossing offers something different, bringing back a link lost when the dual carriageway along Castle Way was created to ease congestion.

Mrs Martlew said: “This would right a wrong done in the 1970s, for the right reasons at that time. The dual carriageway separated the castle from the city centre. There’s a physical barrier there.

“Two attempts have been made to address this with the underpass and bridge, but neither has done the job effectively. Neither is particularly well used.

“This is the right thing to do. It brings the castle back into the city centre. This is good for Carlisle.”

Traffic delays ahead at busy Carlisle roundabout

Published at 08:32, Friday, 25 September 2015

Drivers are being warned of delays when roadworks start at a busy roundabout.

Engineers will be on the ground from Monday installing a toucan crossing at Caldcotes, off Caldewgate in Carlisle.

The signal-controlled crossing will replace the zebra crossing next to the McVitie's biscuit factory.

Cumbria County Council is carrying out the work, using money paid by Sainsbury's for road improvements linked to the opening of their nearby supermarket.

A spokesman said: "The works will improve traffic flows and also the safety of pedestrians wishing to cross the road.

Changes to road system at hospital

By Emily Parsons

Last updated at 10:10, Monday, 28 September 2015

Motorists are being warned to be aware of changes to the road and Whitehaven hospital.

From 7am today, the ring road around the West Cumberland Hospital reverted to one-way traffic, in a clockwise direction.

Porters have been on site to direct vehicles and assist staff, patients and visitors.

However, the section of the ring road between the helipad and the new A&E department, and the section between the site entrance and the old A&E department will remain two-way for emergency vehicles only.

Published at 13:05, Friday, 02 October 2015

Roadworks will take place next week on another of Carlisle’s busiest roads.

Stretches of Brampton Road will be closed from Monday as a £70,000 resurfacing project gets underway.

The project is the latest in a string of resurfacing and improvement schemes taking place across the city.

Work started this week on a potential six-week project to install a toucan crossing at Caldcotes, off Caldewgate.

There has also been night-time work for resurfacing on Scotland Road.

100-mile diversion as county council closes bridge for repairs

By Staff Reporter

Last updated at 09:54, Wednesday, 14 October 2015

A 100-mile diversion will be put in place when council workers shut a vital road in Cumbria.

Cumbria County Council has announced it will be closing Duddon Bridge overnight on Wednesday October 21.

The bridge, on the A595, will be closed for resurfacing but will leave people having to travel more than 100 miles around the edge of the county just to travel a few metres.

Council workers have issued an official diversion route which will take traffic up the west coast to Cockermouth, across to Keswick and Penrith on the A66 and down the M6 to Kendal before crossing over the A590 to Ulverston, then the A5092 towards Broughton.

The only exceptions to this rule are emergency vehicles which will be given full access to the bridge.

A69 road improvement plan moving forward, says city MP

By Jonny Irving

Last updated at 09:59, Thursday, 15 October 2015

Plans to upgrade the A69 in Cumbria to a dual carriageway are moving forward.



Carlisle MP John Stevenson met with Roads Minister Andrew Jones yesterday to thrash out more details of a bid to improve the busy stretch of road.

It follows Mr Jones’ visit to the county last month to see first-hand the issues affecting the A69.

Mr Stevenson told the News & Star that the meeting was positive and said all parties were continuing to work towards the next stage of the plans.

“I know there’s recognition from central Government of the importance of this,” said Mr Stevenson.

“But there’s only a finite amount of money and other areas of the country will be competing with us, but I’m optimistic.”

Speaking last month Mr Jones said he would back a campaign to upgrade the road – as well as the A66 – into a dual carriageway, should experts give the scheme their approval.

The upgrade proposals are regarded as a vital ingredient in ensuring Cumbria plays its part in creating a “Northern Powerhouse” economy.

Bid to cut death toll on Cumbria's rural roads

By Pamela McGowan

Last updated at 14:32, Friday, 23 October 2015

Figures revealing country roads to be the most deadly have prompted the launch of a safety campaign.

It has been backed by Eden council leader Kevin Beaty, who believes driving lessons need to focus more on country roads.

Nationally three people die every day on rural roads. In Cumbria there were 22 deaths last year, with 133 people seriously injured.

A third of all deaths nationally occurred on bends. In research by the Department for Transport, almost a quarter of road users admitted to braking too late on bends and two-fifths had swerved to avoid something in the road. Concerns were most apparent among young drivers, with one out of 10 admitting to “taking the racing line” to get round a bend.

The statistics have prompted a new THINK! campaign, launched in partnership with the farming community. It has seen potential road hazards turned into impossible-to-ignore warning signs. The “helpful hazards” include sheep sprayed with “Sharp Bend Ahead” slogans.

Ivegill-based Mr Beaty, who is also a dairy farmer, believes the gimmick will help to raise awareness with younger drivers.

Summer hope for Carlisle Airport passenger flights

By Julian Whittle

Last updated at 08:49, Monday, 26 October 2015

Scheduled passenger flights from Carlisle Airport could start next summer, Stobart Group chief executive Andrew Tinkler believes.



The company, which owns the airport, revealed in its interim results last week that it was considering making runway improvements in readiness for passenger flights. But take-off is likely to hinge on a government subsidy being approved.

Ministers announced in August that routes from Carlisle to London Southend, Dublin and Belfast are among 15 shortlisted to get funding from a £56m pot to support new services from smaller regional airports.

To secure the money, Stobart Air will have to convince the Department for Transport that the routes will be viable once the three-year subsidy ends.

Mr Tinkler said: “We believe it is do-able and makes commercial sense.

“But we have to make it sustainable and it takes time to build passenger numbers on a new route.

“That [government] support in the first two or three years is vital.”

130 new parking spaces agreed for Carlisle's Cumberland Infirmary

By Jonny Irving

Last updated at 08:47, Tuesday, 27 October 2015

Parking problems at Carlisle’s Cumberland Infirmary are likely to be eased after plans to create more than 130 new spaces were given the go ahead.



The organisation that runs the site – the North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust – will be turning overgrown land in between Reiver House and the Fairfield Centre into a temporary staff car park.

It is hoped that by providing the extra spaces it will reduce the chaos regularly seen in the hospital’s current parking areas.

The problems have long been a complaint of staff, visitors and patients.

Plans to add an extra car park were approved by councillors with the proposals receiving unanimous support from members of Carlisle City Council’s development control committee, who hope the move will ease congestion blamed for some people being late for or missing appointments.

Currock Councillor Heather Bradley said: “I would suggest we grant permission for five years in view of the work that’s involved in putting this car park in place.”

Ray Bloxham, who represents Longtown and Rockliffe on the council, agreed.

New crossing on Carlisle's Castle Way given go-ahead

Published at 12:57, Thursday, 29 October 2015

Plans to install another crossing on one of Carlisle’s busiest roads have been approved.



The majority of county councillors on Carlisle local committee voted in favour of a toucan crossing on Castle Way.

But they threw out a plan for steel steps to extend the nearby Caldew Riverside Trail for pedestrians, suggesting that money be used to upgrade cycle paths in Caldewgate.

After a long debate today, 13 councillors backed the plans, two opposed and Hugh McDevitt, the only councillor who supported the full proposal, abstained.

Castle ward councillor Alan McGuckin voted in favour.

But he said: “If this is dangerous, or if we have a poor reception and this causes problems, then it’s not beyond the wit of man to revisit it in a few years’ time.”

The development will be funded using £360,000 paid from Sainsbury’s as part of planning permission for its Caldewgate store.

A public consultation on the plans from Carlisle City Council attracted 65 responses – 51 in support and 14 against.

City council deputy leader Elsie Martlew described approval as a vote for common sense.

She said: “I’m really pleased that people have seen the relevance of the crossing, its connection to the castle and the economic growth of the historic quarter.”

Councillors favoured the proposal as a better way of connecting the castle to the city.

Flooding causes disruption and road closures across Cumbria

Last updated at 12:38, Sunday, 15 November 2015

Motorists are this morning being warned to only drive if absolutely necessary as heavy rainfall causes problems across Cumbria, with some roads now closed.

Surface water is causing hazardous conditions.

The A66 is badly affected between Penrith and Keswick, particularly at Threlkeld, with traffic being diverted up to Carlisle and along the M6.

Also closed are the B5320 between Pooley Bridge and Yanwath, the B6259 in Warcop, and the A591 near Low Wood Hotel, Windermere, which is partially closed due to a collapsed wall.

The A595 at Holmrook is currently passable with care but may become unpassable because of rising tide.

A spokesperson for Cumbria County Council said: "The heavy rain has resulted in flooding on some routes that has forced closure. We have crews out trying to improve the situation where possible, but with the quantity of rain that has fallen we have to let nature take its course. We are warning drivers not to attempt to drive through floodwater if they cannot accurately judge the depth.”

Last night 600 homes in the Egremont area were urged to evacuate due to predicted flooding.

However rainfall was less than predicted, meaning the vast majority of homes and buildings escaped.

A number of people made their way to an emergency reception centre, which set up at West Lakes Academy, overnight, but left by this morning.

Police praised the multi-agency response, which involved Coastguard, Homewatch and Mountain Rescue.

Assistant Chief Constable Darren Martland, Chair of the multi-agency group, said: "We are pleased that the weather has caused less disruption than first predicted. We still have a number of areas suffering from localised flooding, however we are now in a position to reassure the public that the risk of severe flooding has dropped significantly.

Although there was no major flooding overnight, residents are urged to remain on high alert with more rain forecast.

Flood warnings remain in place across the county, although those in Egremont and Kendal have now been downgraded from severe.

There are currently 15 flood warnings, calling for immediate action, across Cumbria. Those areas most at risk include Keswick, Cockermouth, Wigton, Carlisle, Egremont and Eamont Bridge.

The Keswick area is particularly badly hit, with Threlkeld Cricket Club reporting flooding.

Calls grow over need for vital road upgrades across Cumbria

By Caroline Barber

Last updated at 09:01, Wednesday, 18 November 2015

Pressure is building on highways chiefs to ensure Cumbria’s road network is dramatically improved as the county prepares for billions of pounds worth of investment.

Council leaders said that it is vital that investment is carried out on the county’s roads to help take full advantage of a proposed multi-billion project to build a new nuclear reactor at Moorside, next to Sellafield in west Cumbria.

The latest call was made by members of Cumbria County Council’s development control committee as they were given a presentation about the new power plant proposals.

County council leader Stewart Young has already spoken out about the need to make sure some of that nuclear cash is invested into roads and other key infrastructure across Cumbria.

Business in Carlisle are also keeping an eye on the situation and are hoping that improvements to roads like the A595 and A596 will dramatically enhance links between the north and west of the county.

And the push for new investment comes at a crucial time with the Government minister responsible for the Northern Powerhouse, James Wharton, visiting Carlisle on Friday.

£1.9m rail hub in west Cumbria gets go-ahead

By Caroline Barber and Matthew Cobb

Published at 11:57, Wednesday, 18 November 2015

A £1.9 million rail hub will boost business, cut traffic problems and create a new gateway to a town.



That was the boast as plans for an eagerly-anticipated project to help improve the fortunes of Maryport were approved.

The development will see a new 78-space car park created at the town’s railway station.

The proposals also include a new multi-use games area (MUGA) to be built on land next to Maryport Social Club, which will replace ageing play equipment that will be cleared to make way for the car park.

Keith Little, a councillor for the town and the county councillor responsible for transport, believes its importance cannot be underestimated.

He said: “I’m absolutely delighted that the plans have been approved. We’ve waited a long time for this to be given the go-ahead.

“I’ve no doubt that the new hub will help to alleviate traffic problems, especially on Mealpot Road. An increased car park should encourage more people to get the train.

“I also believe that it’ll bring more people into the town and that can only be good for local businesses, with an expected increase in the number of shoppers.”

Councillor Gerald Humes told a meeting of the authority’s development control committee: “I welcome this application.

£15m upgrade for Carlisle Citadel railway station

By Chris Story

Last updated at 08:58, Wednesday, 25 November 2015

Carlisle Railway Station is getting a near £15 million upgrade.



Network Rail is to replace the historic Citadel station’s problem-plagued roof and rebuild all eight of its platforms.

Glass falling from the roof has forced the closure of some platforms in the past years, prompting calls from unions for action to address safety concerns.

Work on the upgrade will start on Monday and will take up to 15 months to complete. No train services will be affected.

The first phase of the £14.7m project will replace the roof, which will cost £9.5m.

The rest of the cash will be spent on the second phase, upgrading the platforms which will have new surfaces and be made safer for passengers.

Network Rail area director Terry Strickland said: “Carlisle station is impressive and historic but its large roof is showing its age and is in need of significant repair. This investment, part of our Railway Upgrade Plan, will protect it for decades to come.

Government boost for passenger flights from Carlisle Airport

By Julian Whittle

Last updated at 08:27, Thursday, 26 November 2015

Hopes of scheduled passenger flights from Carlisle Airport have received a huge boost.



The Treasury has confirmed that proposed routes from Carlisle to London Southend, Belfast and Dublin are among five to share a £7m subsidy for new services from regional airports.

Stobart Group had applied to the Government’s Regional Air Connectivity Fund and had been waiting to hear if its bid had been successful.

Chief executive Andrew Tinkler welcomed the announcement.

He said: “It’s good news and a step towards getting fights. We’re certainly a lot closer now than we were this time yesterday.

“Summer 2016 isn’t out of the question for starting flights.”

He revealed that Stobart is in discussions with the Civil Aviation Authority about works to upgrade the runway and the installation of an instrument landing system.

The company expects to spend between £3m and £4m on the project – more if it opts to move the passenger terminal into a corner of the new freight distribution centre at Carlisle Airport. This would allow direct access to the terminal from the A689.
