Roads slowly reopening across Barrow and Dalton

ROADS across the region are starting to reopen to traffic as the rain eases and floodwaters start to recede.

Market Street in Dalton is the latest to have cleared sufficiently to allow the return of traffic.

Parkhouse, North and Rampside roads were all badly affected by the deluge, while the force of the rushing water has lifted manhole covers in Ireleth Road, Askam and Rating Lane, Barrow.
A council spokesman said: “The county council has received a high volume of calls from members of the public reporting heavy surface water and flooding incidents on the roads.
“Our highways teams have been out and about responding to incidents and taking action including putting up flood boards and coning off areas where manhole covers have been lifted by the force of the water.
“Anybody wanting to report highways related flooding incidents can do so by calling our Highways Hotline on 0845 609 6609.”

Have your say

I could not believe the amount of back logged traffic and disruption the rain causes in Dalton isnt it about time our tax money was spent on better drainage to cope with this weather as it is not going to get any better
