The busy junction will be shut each night from 8pm to 4am until September 29 – but not this Saturday or Sunday evenings.

A spokesperson for Derbyshire County Council, which is carrying out the work, said: “It’s part of our £40million investment to improve roads across the county.”

They apologised for any inconvenience caused by the closure.

Last October, the authority announced it would spend £40m on improving roads and pavements across the county over the next 18 months.

It usually spends around £23m per year on road maintenance and improvements. But this year extra money has been pledged by the Government for road maintenance, including potholes.

The county council spokesperson added: “This investment in our road network will make a significant difference to everyone who lives, works or travels through Derbyshire."
