From 23rd September 2019 for approximately 3 weeks there will be road works on the A686 Hartside Road (on the Alston side) down from Hartside Summit to Alston.
This is due to re-surfacing work that needs to be carried out. The section of road will be closed between 8am and 6pm to all vehicles.
Before 8am and after 6pm vehicles will be able to get through via a Convoy system. Expect delays with queuing traffic.
Cycles and pedestrians are able to get through (although cyclists will probably need to dismount and walk).
Vehicles will need to follow the diversions to reach Alston either by the M6 to junction 43 at Carlisle then take the A69 -A689 Brampton Road. Or via the A66 to Brough turn off and then via the B6277 from Middleton in Teesdale.
Please call us if you plan to travel to Alston from 23rd September.
