The rest of Crow Lane remains permanently closed to vehicles since February this year, to create a dedicated cycle and walking route to Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

Crow Lane is the eastern end of the new route the council is creating, which will take people past the train station, through Queen’s Park and along Chatsworth Road to the A619 junction with Holymoor Road.

The controversial decision to close the lane was taken last November following a public consultation.
