Fairfield Common roundabout work to start next week

Published on 4 May 2022

Construction work on the new A6 roundabout at Fairfield Common will start next week.

High Peak Borough Council secured funding from Homes England's Housing Infrastructure Fund to build the roundabout at the southern end of the golf course to provide access to housing sites in the approved Local Plan.

The contractor building the roundabout, Galliford Try, will start setting up the site compound from 9 May which will be located alongside Waterswallows Road. Work to set up the compound will take around one week. During this time contractors will access the compound site from Waterswallows Road. Once established, contractors will be able to access their compound directly from the A6.

Much of the initial work to construct the circulatory sections of the roundabout will take place off road but further disruption to A6 users as the project progresses is unavoidable.

The Council will provide regular updates on progress with the project - and on any traffic management measures necessary - via its website and social media channels.

Councillor Anthony Mckeown, Leader of the Council, said: "We are working with Derbyshire County Council to minimise the impact of these works.

"We are mindful of the importance of keeping people informed about this essential work and any implications it may have for journeys and, with that in mind, we're writing to local residents to make them aware that the work is set to start.

"Our website will be kept up-to-date with the latest information and we'll share news and updates on our Facebook and Twitter accounts including details of any traffic management measures required. I would encourage people to check regularly so that they can plan ahead and thank everyone, in advance, for their understanding."

Contractors working for Derbyshire County Council are currently working to fix a landslip on the A5004 Long Hill between Buxton and Whaley Bridge. The road is closed whilst this work takes place and diversions are in place. It is scheduled to be complete by the end of September this year.

The two Councils are working together to minimise the impact of these two road schemes on traffic.
