Warning over delays as lanes will be shut at Chesterfield roundabout

Horns Bridge roundabout.

Horns Bridge roundabout.

Motorists are being warned to expect delays as a key gateway into Chesterfield town centre is transformed.

Work will begin on Monday to install a £300,000 sculpture on Hornsbridge roundabout.

Equipment will have to be brought on to the site, causing the following disruption on the day:

• The inner lane of the roundabout will be coned off

• The A61 bypass will have the southbound approach outside lane closed

• The A617 bypass will have the westbound approach outside lane closed

• A61 Derby Road will have the northbound approach outside lane closed

• Lordsmill Street will have the southbound approach outside lane closed

• The traffic lights will be switched off

Councillor John Burrows, Chesterfield Borough Council’s leader and executive member for regeneration, said: “It is exciting that we are now beginning the work on transforming Hornsbridge but disappointing that this will affect road users – please plan your journey ahead and allow some extra time, particularly during busy periods.”

The sculpture, by local artist Melanie Jackson, features a wheel to symbolise the town’s strong industrial heritage.

The project has been funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Barratt Homes.
