Road improvements

Over the next year we'll be embarking on a major programme of improvements to the county's roads.


We'll be resurfacing, and surface dressing parts of more than 325 roads, spending in the region of £10 million. During March and April 2021 our highways workers and an external contractor have been busy getting these roads ready to be resurfaced or surface dressed by filling in any potholes or fixing any defects.

Our contractors started on our road resurfacing programme mid May, and on our surface dressing programme in July 2021. To make work more efficient the jobs have been grouped together so that all those in an area are carried out at around the same time.

We'll keep this page up to date with work for the coming month. And we'll update on progress regularly too.

We'll be resurfacing these roads in January 2022:

  • Alport Lane Youlgreave
  • Digby Street, Ilkeston
  • Church Street / Cotmanhay Road roundabout, Ilkeston
  • Hollyseat Lane, Belper

And resurfacing these roads in February 2022:

  • Station Road, Barrow Hill
  • Inkersall Road, Staveley
  • Newbridge Lane, Old Whittington
  • Gosber Street, Eckington
  • Peveril Road, Eckington
  • Lumsdale Road, Matlock

We'll need to close the roads so diversions will be in place. To find out exact times and dates please visit One Network and search for the road you are interested in.

Find out more about how we resurface or surface dress roads.

We're also planning to resurface pavements on these streets in January 2022:

  • A6187 Sickleholme (Bamford cross roads to garden centre)
  • Peter More Hill, Bakestone Moor
  • Pine Street, Hollingwood
  • Devon Drive, Brimington
  • High Street, Whitwell

These pavements will be resurfaced in February 2022:

  • St Johns Road Newbold
  • Cromford Road, Langley Mill
  • Broadway, Heanor

This work will be completed during the day, usually from 8am to 4pm. The road workers that in the main carry out this work are also our gritter drivers, so all work could be subject to delays if they have to leave the jobs to grit the roads.
