Gateway plans for Chesterfield

Have your say

Two gateways to Chesterfield are going to benefit from a £500,000 facelift.

The Hornsbridge roundabout, where the A617 from Junction 29 of the M1, meets the A61 to Sheffield, and the Railway Station Link have been selected by Chesterfield Council, following a public consultation. Work should be completed by December 2014.

Council leader, John Burrows, said: “The whole purpose of the Chesterfield Gateways project is to respond to requests from business leaders for us to do more to make the approach routes into town more appealing to potential investors, visitors and our own residents.”
