The initial slip occurred during the storms of November 2020 and due to the complex nature of the slip and the environmentally sensitive location on which it is situated, there has been a lengthy design process to deliver the repair work.

The closure point is located just to the north of The Cross Keys Inn, which is adjacent to the River Rawthey.

The full closure of the road between Sedbergh and Kirkby Stephen on A683, is unfortunately necessary for the works to be compliant with current Health and Safety Legislation. There is not sufficient remaining carriageway width available to allow traffic past the excavation once the works begin.
