Hopton Tunnel Repairs - Pennine Bridleway

16th November 2018

Hopton tunnel is currently open and is being monitored for rock/ metal falls. Further work is required to ensure that the tunnel is safe in the longer term. The plan is to keep the tunnel open as much as possible and carry out work during quiet periods ie. Not at weekends, bank holidays or during the Easter holidays. However if something major happens that poses a health and safety risk the tunnel may have to be shut to rectify this. Derbyshire County Council have applied to extend the closure notice until 24th May 2019 so that they have the flexibility to carry out any neccessary work. If it is safe to do so the tunnel will be left open.
