Update on Waterloo Road

As you may be aware the works to repair the wall at the corner of Waterloo Road have now been completed. As a consequence of the design the road width opposite the Oban property has been reduced to a maximum of 2m at the pinch point.

Following extensive computer modelling and real world testing with various sized cars it has been decided that following completion the road will remain closed to motorised vehicles.

The reduced road width combined with the hairpin bend makes it impossible to turn up or down the road in one continuous movement in any sized car. This coupled with the existing gradient and the inside wall which makes forward visibility limited means it is not safe to allow vehicles to continue using the road.

DCC has installed bollards to prevent vehicles from using the road as a through route.

The new restriction will be supplemented by new signage and additional white lines in the wider Matlock Bath area along with a change of priority at the Waterloo Road/Temple Walk junction.

Next Parish Council Meeting
