MOTORISTS and residents are being warned to expect disruption over the coming weeks as 11 roads across Furness are set to be resurfaced.

The work, by Cumbria County Council, is not expected to start until June but this is subject to a number of factors including the weather and the resurfacing might take place on any date from May 10.

The council hopes all works will be completed by the end of June.

The roads in Barrow and Walney being resurfaced are a 780-metre stretch of Cows Tarn Lane, Walney; a 570m stretch of Wilkie Road from its junction with the A590 in Barrow; a 1.1km section of Dungeon Lane off the A5087 in Barrow; a 650m stretch of Millwood Lane from its junction with Park Road in Barrow; and a 335m stretch of the U6152 from its junction with Rating Lane in Barrow.

Roads in Dalton being resurfaced are a 2.1km section of Broughton Road from Market Street; a 2km section of Thwaite Flat Road and St Helen's to the junction with Askam Road; and a 850m stretch of Long Lane 700m from its junction with Newton Road.

A 705m section of Pit Lane in Lindal and an 860m section of Lots Road in Askam will also be resurfaced.
