Pegasus crossing closed on Woodhead Road 11-29 Sept

6th September 2017

The Pegasus crossing on the A628 at Tintwistle will be closed for refurbishment from the 11th September for 3 weeks. There is currently no formal diversion in place. It is recommended that you try to avoid the crossing during this time. If you have already planned a visit to the trail and need to pass through this section whilst it is closed there are several alternative route options for you to consider. The A628 is a very busy road so great care is required when crossing. We hope that the crossing will be safer and easier to use once the refurbishment is complete.

Horse riders and cyclists:

If you are approaching from Torside Reservoir (from the east), you can continue up the access road past the Longdendale Centre instead of turning right across the field to the Pegasus crossing. At the top of the access road you can cross straight over the A628 onto Chapel Brow. At the top of Chapel Brow turn left to re-join the Pennine Bridleway. There are no traffic lights for crossing the A628 at this point. Reverse if you are heading from the north to Torside.

If you are approaching from Glossop (from the south), head north on New Road at the River Etherow crossing, and at the top of the road turn right then immediately left onto Old Road. Again, there are no traffic lights for crossing the A628 at this point. Reverse if you are heading from the north to Glossop.

Pedestrians:

A signed diversion will be in place to take you to an alternative pedestrian crossing. Basically, follow the footway along the A628 until you reach the pedestrian crossing.
