Welcome to our interactive map of the proposals for HARP.
Using the zoom functions on the left-hand side of the map, you will be able to zoom in and out of specific areas to see more details.
By clicking on the building and car icons on the left, you will see a brief description of each part of the proposal and how this may impact the local area.
In this interactive map you will see outlined:
- COMPOUNDS – Our main working areas that are needed for constructing the new tunnels and connecting to the existing water network
- RED LINE BOUNDARY – This is the planning application boundary. Between the main compounds is a 24 metre corridor within which the new tunnel will be constructed underground. The areas within the red line boundary at the compound locations will be used for temporary activities including the storage of material and land re-profiling, access and parking, and environmental protection such as surface water lagoons
- CONSTRUCTION TRAFFIC ROUTES – The way our construction vehicles will travel to access our compounds.
These plans were designed following a consultation that engaged thousands of people across Cumbria, Lancashire and Greater Manchester. Thank you to everyone that helped shape the future of water services in the North West.
Tebay Road compound (view in map)
- This is where the Tunnel Boring Machine will finish constructing the route of the new pipeline
- Tunnel construction will be from the Kinn Road compound, reducing activity, minimising traffic, noise and disruption on this site
- The Tebay Road compound will be accessed using a combination of 3 access routes from either Junction 37, 38 or 39 of the M6 depending on the type and weight of vehicle.
- Access will now use an existing point and the site boundary would align the access to our main working area
- We expect work on this site to take around two years. The site may be in place for up to three years, with periods of no activity
- Where there are interfaces with public footpaths, we will provide a temporary alternative route
Kinn Road compound (view in map)
- This is the main area for the Docker section, where construction for the new tunnelled pipeline will start
- The compound will be split either side of Kinn Road, with site cabins and car parking to the west and the main construction area to the east
- We expect work here to take around three years, split into three phases: enabling works, construction works and commissioning works
- Access to the Kinn Road compound would be from the A684 directly into the compound
Tebay Road Compound Traffic Route (view in map)
- Depending on the type and weight of vehicle, our construction traffic will use one of three routes
- Construction vehicles will enter through an existing access, which would be modified with a new internal haul road
- Typically, there would be between three and nine construction vehicle movements per hour along this route. 35% of these movements would be light vehicles and 65% would be HGVs
- There would be a peak of around 16 movements per hour for up to eight weeks of our work here. 20% of these movements would be light vehicles and 80% would be HGVs
Kinn Road Compound Traffic Route (view in map)
- Access to this site will be taken from Junction 37 of the M6, heading west using the A684. Vehicles would turn directly off the A684 into the compound via a new access point.
- Traffic movements will vary depending on what stage of work is being undertaken. The peak will be during the main construction phase, when tunnelling will be underway and materials excavated from the site
- Typically, there will be between two and nine construction vehicle movements per hour along this route. 35% of these movements would be light vehicles and 65% would be HGVs
- There would be a peak of around 13 movements per hour for the nine months of tunnelling work. 15% of these movements would be light vehicles and 85% would be HGVs
- Kinn Road will remain open, but there may be requirements for short temporary closures and temporary speed limits. We will provide notification of any traffic management measures well in advance
