It is feared roadworks which have appeared at a major Chesterfield junction over half term could cause problems at rush hour tomorrow.

The major work - which is at Derby Road’s junction with Trevorrow Crescent - began last Thursday and will last for four weeks.

The work is being carried out to give pedestrians and cyclists on that side of Derby Road priority over turning traffic.

However, the work has already caused problems, with some drivers failing to heed the diversion signs and having to turn back.

Trevorrow Crescent is commonly used as a ‘rat run’ for drivers wanting to travel from Derby Road to Park Road or vice versa.

However, they will now have to use Baden Powell Road or the much smaller Redvers Buller Road if they wish to do so.
