Netherhall Corner is the junction of the A596 with the A594 in Maryport town centre.

The signalised crossroads in Maryport town centre

The junction is a signalised crossroads. The A596 runs north to Carlisle and south to Workington, while the A594 runs east towards Cockermouth. The A594 terminates at this junction, with the street heading west from the junction, Wood Street, being residential.

History

The layout of this junction has remained the same since roads were classified. However, in 1922 this was the meeting point of the A596 and B5299. This had changed by the mid-1920s, when the B5299 was reclassified to the A594.

Upon the creation of trunk roads, the A596 formed part of the Cumbrian Coast Trunk Route, alongside the A595, meaning that this junction was maintained by the national highways authority. In 2003, the A596 was de-trunked, meaning the junction became the responsibility of the local authority, Cumbria County Council.
