A52 Improvements - Update

A52 Improvements – Update

The main works for the £14.9 million major transport improvements are planned to start on Monday 9th October 2017.

The scheme aims to address traffic congestion concerns and provide improvements for pedestrians and cyclists using the area, and includes:

  • a replacement wider pedestrian and cycle bridge across the A52 from Meadow Lane, Chaddesden to Wyvern, with ramps so that it is accessible to all users
  • extra lanes on the A52, near the Wyvern junctions
  • carriageway resurfacing and replacement safety barriers
  • a new two lane slip road off the A52 into Wyvern/Pride Park
  • a new signal controlled crossroads at the junction of Wyvern Way and Derwent Parade, with bus priority detectors on the westbound approach
  • improvements to help pedestrians and cyclists including new shared use routes and new crossing facilities

To minimise congestion during construction, the works on the A52 will take place overnight, Monday to Friday for 20 weeks. Diversions will be put in place and other works on the route will be completed at the same time to utilise the road closure.
