Manchester Road will close for three weeks in November to allow for the repair of a collapsed drain under the road.
From 11pm on Friday 8 November 8 to 6am on Monday 2 December 2013 the road will be closed as follows:
- Outbound after Hagg Lane and Coldwell Lane (with notices that access will be maintained for the local businesses and residents)
- Inbound at the junction of the A57/A6101 Rivelin Valley Road. Local traffic will be able to access Lodge Lane via Rails Road but HGVs will be diverted via Malin Bridge
The A57 will then reopen again to single lane traffic while further work is carried out to stabilise the slope below the road. Once this is completed, the road will fully reopen at the end of January 2014. Pedestrian access will be maintained while this work is carried out.
Contractors Amey will advantage of the road closure to carry out other works at the same time including pruning of trees, clearing overgrown footpaths, some footpath repairs and clearing drainage gullies.
