The A595 is a primary route in Cumbria, in northern England that starts in Carlisle, and passes Whitehaven and Workington, and goes close to Cockermouth and Wigton. It passes Sellafield and Ravenglass before ending at the Dalton-in-Furness by-pass, in southern Cumbria, where it joins the A590 trunk road. The road is almost entirely single carriageway, apart from in central Carlisle, where it passes the castle as a busy dual carriageway road named Castle Way, and prior to that as Bridge Street and Church Street, where it passes close to the McVitie's biscuit factory.

Road Schemes

Carlisle Northern Development Route

The Carlisle Northern Development Route (CNDR) is a proposed four-mile long north-western bypass of Carlisle, which would replace the existing A595 through the city (Wigton Road, Church Street, Bridge Street and Castle Way) and reduce congestion on the city's roads. The new road would be of single carriageway standard, with a number of roundabout junctions, as well as a new bridge over the River Eden. The route would begin near Newby West (to the west of the city), before meeting the B5307 (the road to Abbeytown). Shortly afterwards it would cross over the River Eden, and curve round to the north of the Kingstown Industrial Estate, and terminate at Junction 44 of the M6 motorway.

Parton to Lillyhall Improvements

From the junction with the A596 road at Lillyhall to Parton, an upgrade of the A595 has been proposed. A new three-mile dual carriageway would be built, bypassing the town of Distington and replacing the bendy, narrow secion of road that currently exists. The A595 was considered for de-trunking, meaning the scheme would have become the responsibility of Cumbria County Council. However, it was not de-trunked, and has instead been listed in the government's [http://www.highways.gov.uk/roads/projects/7393.aspx Targeted Programme of Improvements] .It began construction in 2007.
