£360,000 boost for Peak’s roads

More than £680,000 is being invested in road repairs and improvements across Derbyshire this month.

Just over half of the money, £360,000, is being spent in High Peak, on road resurfacing on the A6 Barmoor Clough at Chapel-en-le-Frith and A53 Leek Road in Buxton, and a road patching scheme on the B6062 between Chinley and Bridgemont.

The money is part of a £35 million roads improvement package by Derbyshire County Council.

Cllr Dean Collins said: “We are committed to repairing and improving roads and pavements across the county.”

Road patching and resurfacing work will also be carried out on the following roads: Joan Lane, Bamford; Longlands Road and Hall Street, New Mills; unnamed road from the junction with Ashbourne Lane to the A6 Higher Hallsteads, Martinside, Chapel-en-le-Frith; unnamed road, The Wash, Chapel-en–le-Frith, from its junction with Sheffield Road to its junction with unnamed road at Breck End.

Some roads will close temporarily while work takes place.
