A major High Peak road is to be closed in the evening for resurfacing.

The A6 Chapel-en-le-Frith Bypass will be shut between the hours of 7pm and 6am from the B5470 at the slip road in Chapel to its junction with the A5004 at Bridgemont.

The temporary closures are expected to be in force from Wednesday September 14 until Friday September 23, according to Derbyshire County Council.

Traffic will be diverted via the B5470 Manchester Road and the A5004 Buxton Road.

However vehicles over 4.3 metres high will be required to follow the A6 into Buxton and then the A5004 Long Hill across to Whaley Bridge.

From today (Monday September 12) until tomorrow (Tuesday September 13), the A624 Federal Mogul (Ferodo) roundabout will be temporarily closed for a stretch of around 200 metres in each direction from 7pm to midnight for carriageway resurfacing.

Traffic here will be diverted via the B5470, Crossings Road, Whitehough Head Lane, Green Lane and the B6062.

A county council spokesperson apologised for any inconvenience caused by the works, adding: “Access will be maintained, whenever reasonably possible.

“The roads will reopen as soon as the work is finished. This may be earlier than advertised.”

Temporary 30mph and 10mph speed limits at the A6/A623 Barmoor Clough roundabout may also be in force at certain times.
