Roads to Avoid in Cumbria
 
 
Cumbria may be a rural, non-metropolitan county in England, but its residents are often faced with problems on traffic slowdowns and delays. Currently, there are two areas in Cumbria where traffic has become a major problem. These are A591 Cumbria in Rydal due to roadworks on Rydal Bridge and the A65 Cumbria in Lupton due to roadworks along Dovehouses Lane.
 
Meanwhile, both lanes at the A596 Calva Bridge in Workington have been closed for some roadworks until August 2010. Both lanes of Lorton Bridge in Cockermouth, Little Braithwaite in Braithwaite and Scarness Bridge in Bassenthwaite have also been closed due to roadworks.

Road improvements and temporary traffic lights are also observed along the main roads of Cumbria towns and villages such as Coniston, Haverthwaite, Carlisle, Kirby Thore, Elterwater, and Cleator Moore. 
 
Motorway Cameras in Cumbria
 
Cumbria’s local government has installed road cameras in many of its towns and villages to closely monitor traffic and identify violators. Kendal, Kirkby Lonsdale, Whitehaven, and Stainton are among the towns and villages in Cumbria where cameras have been installed. A camera has also been placed to monitor vehicles along the M6 road in Tebay.
