About the project

The A66 Northern Trans-Pennine Project investigates the potential to improve the A66 between the M6 junction 40 at Penrith and the A1(M) at Scotch Corner to address the east/west connectivity across the Pennines in the north of England.

They are proposing to invest around a billion pounds to dual the remaining single carriageway sections of the A66. This will significantly improve journeys and connectivity, which is great news for the local, regional and national economy.
