Work starts to fix landslip on A5004, Long Hill, between Buxton and Whaley Bridge

Published: 21 April 2022

Our contractors will start work on Monday 25 April to fix a landslip on the A5004, Long Hill between Buxton and Whaley Bridge.


While the work takes place the road will be closed, with signed diversions in place. It is scheduled to be completed by 25 September.

The road here first moved in 2016 and has steadily got worse so a set of traffic lights were put on the road in December 2019 to keep traffic away from the edge of the road.

The work includes our contractors digging down to bedrock, around 6 meters below the existing road level and putting in a reinforced earth retaining wall. It has been scheduled to avoid work taking place on the A6 in Buxton, as this is the diversion route.

Contractors working for High Peak Borough Council are building a roundabout on the A6 at the southern end of the golf course to provide access to housing sites at Hogshaw and Waterswallows (Dale Lane).

Most of this work will be taking place at the side of the road, meaning that the A6 won’t be closed while the work on the A5004 takes place, apart from three overnight closures in July, with dates to be confirmed nearer the time.

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience while this work takes place.
