There are extensive WEEKDAY / DAYTIME ( closures 08:00 – 17:00) roadworks in early 2023 on the A592 between the Aira Force junction and Pooley Bridge.
During the following WEEKDAYS there will be DAY TIME closures between 08:00 and 17:00 as follows:
n.b confusingly they are leaving the “road closed ahead” signs up at all times 🙁 
Jan 9th 2023 – ???     – sections of the Road between Aira and Penrith ( access “from the north” now possible via A5091 from Troutbeck )
So if you were wanting to get access past one of these sections during one of these periods and between 08:00 and 17:00, you may have to park one side of the works and then walk

Of course, the council reserves the right to change these dates so you must go to  the Cumbria Road works  website to get “up to date” information
Enter “patterdale” in the “location” box and then click “Show on Map”
It defaults to showing roadworks “Today”..
Click on the drop down arrow to show “next two weeks” etc
