Work to build a new cycle lane in Chesterfield is set to start on August 26 as part of a plan to link different parts of the town together for bike riders.

Derbyshire County Council will create the 720 metre cycle lane alongside the A61 northbound between Infirmary Road and Hazlehurst Lane.

The path is being constructed as part of the Chesterfield Cycle network and will involve the building of a new section of pavement shared by pedestrians and cyclists.

The A61 dual carriageway will be reduced to one lane in a northbound direction for around 13 weeks while works takes place and delays are expected.

The long-term cycle network project will is an attempt to link key aspects of the town such as shopping areas, hospitals, schools and train and bus stations with Market Square and the main residential areas.
