Sheffield motorists are set to face difficulties next week as Snake Pass will be closed.

The road which connects Glossop to Manchester is due to be resurfaced between 23 October and 27 October.

The closure is to be put in place from Hurst road junction to the junction of A6013 in Bamford.

A diversion will be put in place via the A6013, A6187, B6049, A623, A6, A6015, A624 and the A57 for motorists.

The road is being resurfaced due to a number of potholes which have been causing mayhem for many drivers.

Councillor Simon Spencer, Derbyshire County Council cabinet member for highways, transport and infrastructure told The Star: “This is essential repair work necessary to make the road safe and reliable for all road users”.

This diversion will be in place for a week, following this the road will be open as usual.
