Carlisle is a English city near the Solway Firth and the Scottish Border. Several important cross country routes terminate here, including the A6, A7, A69, A595 and A689. Until the closing of the Cumberland Gap in December 2008, the M6 and A74 also ended here - the M6 is now the only road to continue through Carlisle instead of terminating there.
