MOTORISTS will be subjected to a diversion between Drakelow and Walton-on-Trent when maintenance works begin later this month.
Derbyshire County Council has confirmed that Walton Road will be closed between its junction with Cauldwell Road, Drakelow, and Bells End Road in Walton-on-Trent, from September 22, so that culvert replacement works can take place.
It is expected to reopen on November 2.
An alternative route will be put in place via Cauldwell Road, Drakelow, Burton Road, Rosliston Road and Coton Road in Rosliston and Main Street in Walton-on-Trent.
It will be in use in both directions.
The county council said that access will be maintained whenever reasonably possible on the affected length of road.
It added that the road could reopen earlier than planned if the work was completed ahead of schedule.
