Wyvern – A52 Westbound on and off slip road closures

Recent work to demolish Meadow Lane Footbridge, which links Chaddesden to the Wyvern and Pride Park areas, was completed successfully and ahead of schedule. Now that the footbridge has been demolished, the next phase will involve works in the area near the Derwent Parade roundabout. As well as needing the space to build the replacement footbridge, work will also take place to realign the slip roads between Wyvern and the A52 Westbound. There will also be changes to the roundabout at the junction of Derwent Parade and Wyvern Way, with temporary traffic lights on Wyvernside, Wyvern Way and Derwent Parade.

From Monday 3 June 2019, the Wyvern/A52 – Westbound slip roads will be closed. Vehicles travelling to and from Wyvern/Pride Park will need to follow the signed diversion routes.

Vehicles travelling to Pride Park/Wyvern from the A52 Westbound should continue on the A52 towards Pentagon Island, taking the second exit onto Eastgate and Holmes Bridge (A601), turning left at the traffic lights and then keeping right onto Station Approach and Pride Parkway (A6), turning left at the second roundabout to Derwent Parade.

Vehicles travelling from Wyvern/Pride Park will be diverted along Derwent Parade to Pride Parkway (A6), continuing along Station Approach to Cock Pitt, turning right at the traffic lights to Holmes Bridge (A601) around Darwin Place to Eastgate and Pentagon Island.

The roads will be re-opened earlier if works are completed ahead of the scheduled times.

An article on Derby City Council News today gives details of the next phase of work to be carried out on the A52 Wyvern Transport Improvement Scheme –https://news.derby.gov.uk/work-to-commence-on-the-next-phase-of-a52-scheme

 

The footbridge that links Meadow Lane, Chaddesden, with the Wyvern Retail Park has now been demolished and works will continue on Wyvern Way in the area near the Derwent Parade roundabout. Demolition of the footbridge has provided the space needed to carry out work for the replacement footbridge and to allow works to take place to create the new slip roads both off and on to the A52 westbound. This means we will be closing both the A52/Wyvern Westbound off and on slip roads from 3 June 2019. Signed diversion routes will be provided once these closures come in to effect (as on attached plan).

Wyvern Way off slip from A52 westbound – closed from 3 June 2019 until late summer 2019

The signed diversion route will be:

To Pride Park/Wyvern – continue on A52 westbound to Pentagon Island, Eastgate, Holmes Bridge (A601), Pride Parkway (A6), Derwent Parade.

Wyvern Way on slip to A52 westbound – closed from 3 June 2019 for approximately 13 months

The signed diversion route will be:

From Wyvern/Pride Park – Derwent Parade, Pride Parkway (A6), Holmes Bridge (A601), Darwin Place, Eastgate to Pentagon Island then onto A52 eastbound.

 

The roads will be re-opened earlier if works are completed ahead of the scheduled times.

The first phase of these works involved demolishing the Meadow Lane footbridge last weekend.  The next phase will involve works in the area near the Derwent Parade roundabout.  As well as needing the space to build the replacement footbridge, work will also take place to create new slip roads both off and on to the A52.  To keep businesses up to date with what is planned, Derby City Council is holding a drop-in session on 28 May.

Wyvern and Pride Park businesses are invited to join Derby City Council officers to discuss the A52 Wyvern Transport Improvement Scheme.

Drop in Information Event
Tuesday 28th May 2019
Corolla Lounge, Pride Park Stadium
Drop in anytime between 9.00 am and 11.30 am

Please confirm your attendance by email to traffic.management@derby.gov.uk

Further details about the scheme are on the A52 Scheme webpage which can be found at www.derby.gov.uk/a52-improvements.

A major part of the A52 Wyvern Improvement Scheme is the replacement of the footbridge, which links the residential area of Chaddesden to the Wyvern and Pride Park area.

 

To prepare for demolition, the current footbridge will be closed to the public on Monday 29th April, and demolition will take place over the weekend of Friday 17th May.

 

In order to create a safe working environment, reduce disruption, and for demolition work to take place as quickly as possible, a full road closure will be in place on both carriageways of the A52.  This will be from Pentagon Island to the Raynesway junction, between 8.00pm on Friday 17th May until 6.00am on Monday 20th May.  Advanced warning signs advising drivers of the closures will be in place during week commencing 22nd April.  Signed diversion routes will also be in place.

Due to the limited time available to complete the work while the road closure is in place, work will be carried out around the clock.  Although noise disruption is inevitable with work of this scale, we will try, where possible, to minimise noise disruption.

 

In terms of diversions while the bridge is closed, pedestrians and cyclists will be able to use the Highfield Lane footbridge to cross the A52. The pedestrian diversion route will be along the footway adjacent to the A52 to Highfield Lane Bridge, then along Chequers Road to Wyvernside.  The pedestrian crossing on Wyvern Way will be relocated closer to the roundabout, outside Pizza Hut.

 

It is anticipated that the new footbridge will open next Spring, with the completion of the wider A52 Transport Improvement Scheme by Summer 2020.

Improving the A52 will bring great benefits to a congested part of Derby’s roads; including better access to the city, improved air quality and a boost for our economy.

 

Further details about the Improvement Scheme are on the A52 Scheme webpage.  This will be regularly updated, along with social media updates as the scheme progresses. Read the latest news announcement and associated FAQs on our newsroom.

Night-time works re-commence, 23 April 2019, on the Eastbound carriageway of the A52 Brian Clough Way

 From Tuesday 23 April to Friday 26 April, between 8.00pm and 6.00am each night, the A52 Eastbound carriageway will be closed from Pentagon Island to Raynesway, including Wyvern Way slip road on to the A52 Eastbound.

The closures are needed so that street lighting can be installed.

Diversions will be put in place and vehicles will not be able to access the A52 Brian Clough Way from Eastgate Flyover, Pentagon slip road or Wyvern Way slip road on to the A52 Eastbound.

  • From Pentagon Island the diversion will be along Nottingham Road/Derby Road (A6005).
  • From Wyvern Way the diversion route will be along Derwent Parade, Pride Parkway (A6), Holmes Bridge (A601), The Underpass, Eastgate to Pentagon Island then along Nottingham Road/Derby Road (A6005).

Replacement of foot and cycle bridge – Meadow Lane to Wyvern

When we carried out a public consultation on the A52 Scheme back in 2015, we did not have final drawings of the replacement footbridge from Meadow Lane, Chaddesden to the Wyvern and Pride Park areas. The general arrangement drawing showed the location of the replacement bridge, but it was stated at the time that this was subject to change. Designs are now complete and the drawings of the location and how the bridge will look are shown on the scheme webpage. We have also issued a news article about the replacement bridge.

 

Scheme Update

Work continued in December on the A52 between the Pentagon and Raynesway junctions.  The additional lane on the A52 eastbound is now open, this will ease congestion for drivers entering the A52 eastbound from Wyvern Way. Please see the news article for more details.

 

Further email updates will be sent out, the webpage will be updated, along with Twitter and Facebook updates.

As part of the ongoing work on the A52 Wyvern Transport Improvement Scheme, the schedule of works up to end of December 2018 has now been confirmed.

Overnight work will commence on Monday 22nd October and run until Friday 21st December.  All work will take place overnight Monday to Friday between the hours of 8.00pm and 6.00am when traffic flows are lighter.  Diversions will in place along Derby Road and Nottingham Road Chaddesden.

The schedule of works is detailed below:

Any changes to the proposed scheduled will be communicated to you as soon as we are made aware of them.   The A52 Scheme webpage will continue to be regularly updated, along with our social media channels.
