M6 Tebay Bridge gets £2.6m revamp

A major refurbishment of a motorway bridge in Cumbria starts next month.

The Highways Agency is spending £2.6m on repairing the southbound carriageway of the Tebay Bridge, which carries the M6 over the River Lune.

A contraflow system will be put in place and a 40mph speed limit will be enforced along the route.

The six-month project would "extend the life" of the bridge, the Highways Agency said. The northbound section will be repaired next year.
