UPDATE: Network Rail reveals when closed Aldwarke Lane could reopen

A MAJOR road remains closed this morning after repairs were undertaken following an accident involving a lorry.

But after being shut for almost 48 hours, Aldwarke Lane, Parkgate, looks set to reopen on Thursday. 

The A6123 has been closed to all traffic since about 12.50pm on Monday (February 11), after a lorry hit one of two bridges near the Station pub, dislodging coping stones in the bridge.

A spokeswoman for Network Rail said wooden shuttering was being used to hold the bricks in place that came off the bridge whilst the concrete sets. 

"We estimate the shuttering will be removed tonight, with a view that the road will be open from tomorrow morning," the spokeswoman added.
