Derbyshire County Council has confirmed that the B5035 Crich Road, between Whatstandwell and Crich, has sustained severe damage – forcing a temporary emergency closure.
The burst water main is on the existing Leashaw diversion route, due to the landslip at Holloway village. The diversion route will now take longer for drivers, but the damage to the road is extensive and it remains closed for public safety.
Drivers were encouraged to plan extra time for their journeys, and advised that Severn Trent will put out diversion signs as soon as possible.
