A Cromford Road Closure Due To Landslip

Published on Friday 17 January 2020

Derbyshire County Council is advising motorists of a closure on a section of road between Cromford and Lea Bridge following a landslip earlier this week.

A 45 metre Section of Lea Road gave way overnight Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16 January.


Recent floods and heavy rain have contributed to part of the road collapsing.

The collapse is on the side closest to the river. The bank has given way leaving the road unsupported which in turn has caused it to give way.

Council engineers are currently assessing the damage and using drone footage to get a more accurate picture of the situation.

Lea Road is closed from the junction with Willersley Lane and the junction with Lea Road at Lea Bridge.

Signposted diversions are in place. The alternative route is along the B5035 through Whatstandwell and Crich, through Wakebridge and Holloway, then back on to Lea Road and vice versa.

Littles Travel bus services 140 and 141 are affected and are being diverted through Tansley. Check with the bus company for the latest information.

Access to Cromford railway station is unrestricted.

Until the extent of the damage is determined it is unclear what repair work needs to be carried out or how long the road will be closed for, although it is expected to be many months.
