Northbound M6 in Cumbria closed due to fatal accident

  • 25 February 2013
  • By Ashleigh Wight

Operators are being advised to avoid the northbound M6 between junctions 35 and 36 in Cumbria, which is closed following a fatal accident this morning (25 February).

The road is closed between junctions 35 at Carnforth and 36 for Kendal, due to a collision between a number of LGVs, light goods vehicles and a car at around 8.15 this morning.

A diversion is currently in place from junction 35, taking drivers via the A601(M) onto the A6 through Midthorpe, onto the eastbound A590 for junction 36.

The Highways Agency and police have now opened the central reservation gate to allow drivers stuck between the two junctions to turn around. Lane three of the northbound carriageway has also been opened north of the incident to allow trapped vehicles though.

The Highways Agency has advised operators to avoid the area as the road is likely to remain closed for several hours.
