Bridge Updates

Please visit Cumbria County Council website for official and latest updates:
Vistitor Car Parking in Pooley Bridge:
Construction Works have started to construct the new Pooley Bridge structure over the River Eamont which means that Dumallard car park, to the west side of the village is now closed for visitor parking.   To compensate for the temporary loss of Dunmallard car park, Cumbria County Council have provided a temporary car park, 100 yards before the junction leaving the B5302. This provides free car parking for up to 30 vehicles, with a shuttle bus to allow visitors to travel safely into the village. The car park also has access to the footpath, which remains open if visitors wish to walk to the village.   Car parking is signed posted along the B5302.

The shuttlebus timetable is available at the bus stop and on the county council’s website

The works to rebuild the bridge have been planned in a way to minimise disruption to the local community, businesses and tourism in the area, whilst this exciting project is completed. Pooley Bridge will remain open for business throughout the construction period.

Next update meeting on Wednesday 18th September 2019.  Parkin Memorial Hall, Pooley Bridge.  Doors will open at 6pm for a 6:30pm start.
