Resurfacing work costing more than £470,000 is to be carried out on a section of the A66 in Cumbria.

The Highways Agency is resurfacing a one mile section of the road between Barras and the County Durham border.

A spokesman for the agency said the road was "nearing the end of its serviceable life" and the work will provide "smoother and safer" journeys.

The work, which begins on 9 March, is expected to be completed by the end of the month.

Local diversions will be in place.
