 Barring any unforeseen problems the full length of the High Peak Trail should be back open for the Spring Bank Holiday week.

A temporary bridge is due to be craned into position on Sunday 19th May. There will still be work to make sure ramps and fencing onto the structure are in place and safe. Horse riders will be advised to dismount while crossing the temporary bridge. It is anticipated that the bridge will be open for public use from Saturday 25th May onwards.

Safety works including spray concrete are being carried out to stabilise the limestone tunnel. Work should also be complete to enable the tunnel and trail to be re-opened for 25th May.
