Work to build a new cycle path in Chesterfield is ahead of schedule and a road closure has been removed.
Construction work on the path between Queen’s Park and the town’s train station started last week.
The A61 southbound exit slip road – which was planned to be closed for a month – was only shut for three days.
A Derbyshire County Council spokesman said: “We’re pleased to say work is ahead of schedule and the road closure has now been removed in the run-up to Christmas.
“Work is ongoing and further road closures are being planned for the new year.”
