Groundwork and landscaping at the site is almost complete and the McDonald's building itself will arrive on site in April.

Richard Tarbatt, Managing Director of Twiggs in Matlock, said: "The opening of McDonald’s in Matlock is now just a few months away.

"The site continues to be developed for the new restaurant and we are very proud that local contractors have been used for the work wherever possible.

"The main contractor on site is Chesterfield-based Beighton Construction, who have done an excellent job on what is challenging site. NT Killingley, also from Chesterfield, have undertaken the earthworks and clearance work."

And Andy Holmes of Beighton Construction added: “It has been an interesting and complex project with many difficulties to overcome. As we await the building’s arrival, we wish Twiggs and the people of Matlock all the best with their new McDonald’s.”

The restaurant is situated adjacent to Twiggs’ steelworks and will include a drive-thru facility. About 65 new jobs will be created. The car wash at the western end of the site will remain.
