Flood-vulnerable A590 Lindal 'dip' gets new drainway

Drivers are being warned of delays as work to upgrade a flood-prone road in Cumbria gets under way.

Temporary traffic lights are in place on the A590, east of Lindal-in-Furness near Ulverston later until 06:00 BST on Monday and for the next three weekends.

Highways England said the road was vulnerable because of surface "dip" and engineers were working on a more "permanent solution".

New drains and gullies are being installed, a spokesman said.
