Snow causing traffic problems in the High Peak

Posted on 17th March 2018

The A57 Snake Pass is closed due to snow and multi-car accidents are causing congestion on two major routes around Buxton; the A53 and the A515.

Drivers are advised to avoid the A53, which connects Buxton with Leek and Stoke-On-Trent, following an incident marginally over the Staffordshire border near Flash at around 1pm this afternoon.

The A515 crash occurred at around 2.20pm on the route towards Buxton, near to the Fire Station. Again, finding an alternative route is advised.

It is thought that low visibility in heavy snow contributed to both accidents. Thankfully, there were no serious injuries.
