    Subway works update

    DCC Update re Subway Works Sett Valley Car Park under A624

    The below is an extract from an e-mail received from Derbyshire County Council in response to a query raised at the June Hayfield Parish Council Meeting:

    Further to your enquiry to the Authority regarding the Hayfield Subway.

    The current state of play is that the subway will remain closed until we have investigated the cause of the repeated flooding. To put some of this in context, we are of the belief that the original subway outfall has a blockage somewhere along its length. Locating this blockage has proven difficult to say the least with all the historic plans barely decipherable which has meant us physically investigating the system on site. The last investigation which was undertook on Monday the 1st of July consisted of locating historic manholes on site (some of which were under two inches of soil and not been lifted for 50 years) and jetting of the system with special dye's to enable tracing. This proved invaluable as we were able to ascertain there is a blockage, the rough location of the blockage, and the fact that the highway drainage system and the subway drainage system combine at some point.

    The next step is to conduct a CCTV survey of the system to locate the point where the systems combine, locate a 'missing' manhole shown on historic plans and try and view what is causing the water to back up. When we have all this information I will be able to come up with a remedial solution.

    Footbridge closure: Spring Vale Road

    Road sign warning

    Spring Vale Road footbridge has become unsafe and has was closed a few weeks ago. A Derbyshire County Council inspector examined the bridge on 21st June 2019 and found its condition has worsened significantly since his previous inspection in May. The bridge is being propped up and DCC are aiming for the new structure to be installed towards the end of July.

    New Heras fencing will be installed at either end of the bridge to prevent people from crossing. It appears as though people are ignoring the red barriers currently in place and climbing over them to cross the bridge.

    DCC Highways have updated the Parish re their Bridge replacements:

    1. The Spring Vale Road - Valley Road bridge by the children's playground will be installed on Monday 8th July 2019. Obviously during installation the crossing will still be unavailable for just a few days more.
    2. The bridge from Kinder Road across the River Sett to the Caravan and Caravanning Park, which was scheduled for completion in November 2019, has been built, undergone preservation and delivered to DCC. This will be fitted in the next month.
