Hartside roadworks begin
RESURFACING work at Hartside which was postponed during the heavy snow will begin on Monday.
The A686 will be closed at Meathaw Hill between Hartside summit and the Leadgate junction for eight days, but a convoy system will operate between 7 and 8-30am and 5-30-6-30pm each day in an effort to minimise inconvenience.
Arrangements have also been made to allow school transport through. An official diversion route will direct traffic to the south via Penrith, Brough and Middleton-in-Teesdale at other times.
