Road Issues

Problems with the highways within Hesket Parish are dealt with by Cumbria County Council. Once reported, problems are categorised and dealt with accordingly.

A range of issues fall into category one problems. These can vary from fallen trees to road traffic accidents which will be dealt with immediately, to pot holes greater than 100mm, which are aimed to be assessed within 24 hours. Less urgent problems will be dealt with accordingly.

A map of current and upcoming road works can be accessed here.
