From Monday 17th September 2018 for approx 2 weeks there will be a temporary closure on the A686 Hartside Road from Penrith to Alston for road re-surfacing work.
The closure is between Melmerby and the junction for Renwick.
There is an official diversion which takes you up to the A69 but you can divert from Melmerby via Gamblesby and Renwick to re-join the A686 beyond the road works (the C2C route).
There should be access through the road works for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists so people doing the C2C should not be affected.
