The proposed diversion route.

A spokesman for Via East Midlands, which manages Nottinghamshire’s roads on behalf of Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “It will be closed due to Network Rail inspecting the railway bridge over St Peter’s Way.”

The closure is due to take place between 10pm on Tuesday, August 1, and 6am the next day.

The spokesman said: “A diversion will be in place.”

Motorists face a two-mile diversion along the A6009 Chesterfield Road South, A6009 Rosemary Street, Portland Street and the A60 St Peter’s Way – and vice versa – to avoid the quarter-mile long closed stretch.
