GLOSSOP: Repairs to roads damaged by weather

Have your say

Council chiefs are to spend £35,500 on repairing roads in and around Glossop as part of a countywide scheme.

Derbyshire County Council approved the sum which will see £4million spent across the county in a bid to repair the damage caused by this winter’s harsh weather conditions.

Councillor Dean Collins, Deputy Cabinet Member for Jobs, Economy and Transport said: “Last year was an unusually wet summer which was followed by periods of snow and frost which led to severe damage being caused to many roads and pavements.

“We are working hard to provide an efficient transport network and this work will help us to achieve that by carrying out improvements where it is most needed.”

In Arundel Street and Fauvell Road, Glossop, a surface dressing programme will be carried out at a cost of £5,000 in 2013/14 and £13,000 in 2014/15.

Manor Park Road, in Glossop, will be subject to a surface dressing programme costing £2,500 in 2013/14 and £10,000 in 2014/15.

In Chapel Lane and Ridings Road lower junction, Hadfield, £5,000 will be spent patching the carriageway at the junction in 2013/14.

The £4million funding was granted by the Government and £2.625 million will be spent across Derbyshire on work up to March 2014. The rest will be spent on work completed in 2014/15.

Local county councillors were consulted in order to determine which roads were of most concern to residents in the High Peak.
