Snake Pass to close at weekends for repairs

AN £80,000 Derbyshire County Council project to resurface parts of Snake Pass on the A57 near Glossop is due to start this week.

Most of the work, which will include repairing sections of the road which have sunk in previous years, will be carried out without closing the road.

Temporary traffic lights will be in place to control vehicles during the week.

But the road will need to close at weekends from 7am on Saturdays until 5pm on Sundays between the B6013 Ashopton junction to the junction with Hurst Road, Glossop, on:

* 27-28 October

* 3-4 November

* 10-11 November

Diversions will be in place along A6013, A6187, B6049, A623, A6, A624, A57 and vice versa.

Vehicles over 12’9” will be directed along an alternate route via A6013, A6187, B6049, A623, A6, A6015, A624, A57, and vice versa.

Councillor Andrew Lewer, Leader of DCC, said: “We always try to keep disruption to a minimum but we would urge motorists to bear with us while these important repairs are carried out.”
