Road Closure Proposal -- Abney

Road Closure Proposal -- Abney
« on: Monday 11 December 2017: 12:12 »
I have just received notification of a proposed road closure in Abney.

The closure will be to the west of Abney towards Camphill, in the wooded area where the road crosses a small stream, known locally as the Bonk.

It will not affect access to or from Duper Lane from the east - Hathersage side or from Brough. But there will be no access to Duper Lane from the Camphill Abney Grange Side. I am sure that road closure signs will be in place at the time.

This part of the road has been getting worse due to increased traffic caused by the road closure to the west. The work has been delayed to ensure that access to Abney - Abney Grange, has been maintained.
I will update this site as and when I know any more.

Details from DDDC

Currently the proposals are as follows, this work will take place in the first few weeks of March 2018 under a road closure. Obviously the contentious part is the road closure as you all will have had two and a half years of the road being closed at Camphill Lane. Due to safety considerations DDDC cannot undertake the repair works without a closure due to its narrow width. Cyclist and pedestrians will be allowed passage however, when safe to do so. In addition during the evenings and night time we will have to keep the road barriered off due to the depth of excavation being left open.

I anticipate this work to take three weeks to complete and we would try and work weekends where possible (but with the workforce on gritting duties this would be subject to change at short notice), approximately 25m of new retaining wall will be built with a new concrete foundation sat into the steep embankment (and not on top of the embankment which is half the problem at the moment).

The Gliding Club have now received notification from DDDC that the road through Abney Clough as above will be closed for repairs from Monday 5th March for up to three weeks - that is until Sunday 25th March.

Thanks Dave, hopefully they manage the job on time this time,
It would be nice if they went on to re surface Duper lane after that...
