A57 Snake Pass closed for two weeks from June 1st

The A57 Snake Pass will be closed from Monday 1 June until Sunday 14 June so that major repairs can be made to the retaining wall in four different places.  There will be no through route from Glossop to Sheffield for any vehicle while the work is taking place. The road will be closed from the junction of the A57 with the A6013 Ashopton Road to its junction with Hurst Road in Glossop.  A signed diversion route will be in place, which is A6013 – A6187 – B6049 – A623 – A6 – A615 – A624 – A57 (to point of closure) and vice versa.  People wanting to visit the Snake Pass Inn will be able to drive to the pub from the Bamford side.

Councillor Dean Collins, Derbyshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Infrastructure, said: “We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience while the Snake Pass is closed, but we cannot carry out this essential work without closing the road.”
