The closure will remain in place 24/7 until Sunday 25th October, or earlier completion of all works
A 28 mile signed diversion is in place via Bamford, Hope, Peak Forest, and Chapel -en –le- Frith, although some drivers may find the Woodhead Pass a better alternative.
Drivers should also be aware of overnight (6pm-6am) lane closures and local diversions on the A57 through Mottram which are also taking place this week
