To allow specialist contractors to investigate the causes of the February landslip, The A57 Snake Pass will be closed for four weeks from Monday 26th September.
The road will be closed to all users from Hagg Farm to Doctors Gate, a distance of 5.6 miles. The contractors will need to use the remaining piece of road at the Alport slip for a drilling rig, so there will be no possibility of any vehicles getting past. There are turning places at either end of the closure.
There will be no through route for any vehicle over the Snake Pass while the work is taking place. Advisory signed diversion route will be at either end of the Snake Pass.
