A BUSY stretch of Ashbourne road is due to be closed on Sunday, to allow workmen to fix a noisy manhole cover.
Cokayne Avenue, between its junctions with Hall Lane and Spalden Avenue, will be closed off to traffic between 7am and 4pm while Severn Trent carries out the repairs.
Traffic will be directed around a diversion through Hall Lane and The Green Road.
Neighbours reported the problem to the firm, which says it has worked with Derbyshire County Council to single out the best day to carry out the work, and that it hopes to have the repair completed quickly.
A spokesman said: “We’d like, first of all to thank the people that reported the problem to us in the first place and we’d also like to apologise for anyone inconvenienced by the road closure.
“We appreciate it is a busy road but we will be working to get it all done as quickly as possible.”
