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.

Further details about the scheme are available on the A52 Scheme webpage.  This will be regularly updated, along with social media updates as the scheme progresses. You can read the news announcement about the Meadow Lane footbridge and associated FAQs on our newsroom.

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.
