The new Hollis Lane link road is proposed to link Brewery Street via the station with the A632 at Spa Lane, Hady Hill.
If the proposals for the new road go ahead, it would improve access to the station from the south and reduce the level of traffic travelling through the town centre.
It would also open up the area around Chesterfield Train Station for housing and business use and to improve parking.
The road would be built in 2 phases. Phase 1 would include widening the junction of Spa Lane and Hollis Lane and installing traffic lights at the junction. This would help to manage the additional traffic. New steps and a ramp would be built to provide access for pedestrians from the underpass and a new cycle route would be created alongside the link road to connect with the existing railway station cycle route.
The second phase would extend the link road north towards the station and through to Brewery Street and onward to Brimington.
Under the proposals, the traffic light system at Lordsmill roundabout and Piccadilly junction would also be improved to help traffic flow better along the A632.
Access to the A632 will be maintained at all times.
