ROADWORKS are under way on a stretch of Abbey Road in Barrow this morning.

Resurfacing work to the 320m section between Victoria Avenue and Park Drive is scheduled to last for two weeks.

Motorists on their way into Barrow will have to follow a signed diversion via Rating Lane/Hollow Lane and Bridgegate Avenue.

Motorists on their way out of Barrow will be unaffected.

Once complete, the new road will help to reduce traffic noise.

Meanwhile, roadworks on the a590 at the Lindal Dip are into their final week.

The road will be closed from 8pm to 6am on Thursday and Friday, ahead of the road's reopening on Saturday morning.
