Road Conditions across the High Peak and Derbyshire

Derbyshire County Council – road closure update, as at 7pm, 12th March:

DCC and their farmer contractors have been out today to check on rural communities where there continued to be some road access issues caused by snow. Whilst it has been significantly warmer today, there’s potential for snow and cold temperatures in the north of the county over the coming days so we’ll continue to monitor the weather conditions closely.

  • Holme Moss (A6024) will remain closed overnight because of snow on the Kirklees side of the road. They are working to clear the remaining snow and hope to reopen tomorrow morning.
  • All other main roads closed because of the weather have now been reopened.

The following page will be updated when they get confirmation that Holme Moss has been reopened on the Kirklees side:
