Work on the A6 in the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site area

We’ve been working hard to spend the government cash to repair the condition of the historic walls in different places along the A6 between Matlock and Whatstandwell.

TRepairs to a stone wall on the A6he government awarded us just under £5 million from their Local Highways Maintenance Challenge Fund. This project will improve the condition of historic highway retaining walls and trial smart technology in road drainage gullies in a project area along the A6 between Matlock and Whatstandwell.

Urgent wall repairs have begun while keeping their historic characteristics. There will be more repairs to be done until Autumn 2022 and we will do all we can to keep disruption to a minimum.

Once finished, this work will help us to ensure that the A6 remains a reliable route for local residents, commuters, business and tourist traffic.

We'd like to thank you for your patience and understanding while these essential works are carried out.
