Motorists are being warned of traffic disruption and diversions with the temporary closure of the A617 bypass again this weekend

The bypass will be closed between the A61 Hornsbridge roundabout and Hassocky Lane between 11.59pm tonight (Friday) and 10am on Sunday, June 24, for maintenance work.

The alternative route will be via the Lordsmill Street roundabout; A619 Hollis Lane; Spital Lane; St Leonard's Drive; Hasland Road; Mansfield Road; Corbriggs; Hassocky Lane and vice versa.

Derbyshire County Council said access will be maintained wherever possible, and the road will re-open as soon as the work is finished, which may be earlier than advertised.

The by-pass will be closed to allow highway maintenance work to be carried out
