No access to station

I have just returned home after trying to take my daughter to the train station.

We live in Hasland, so went along Piccadilly Road to the end only to find it blocked to both traffic and pedestrians. I quickly turned round and headed back through town and arrived at the Chesterfield hotel where the station was blocked off at that end also.

There were several cars having to turn round in the road with people jumping out of cars in order to get to the station in time for their trains.

I find it astounding that a train station is made inaccessible to vehicles even if it is Sunday afternoon.

Some signs before the blockades would have been helpful.
