A52 Wyvern Transport Improvement Scheme – Stakeholder Update – March 2018


A52 Brian Clough Way

 The next phase of work, between the Pentagon and Raynesway junctions, starts on Saturday 24th March 2018. This phase includes the construction of the new concrete central reservation barrier. This needs to be carried out in the daytime and is being done during the Easter school holiday period, when there will be less traffic on the roads. One lane of the carriageway in each direction will be closed for 24 hours a day.  The lane closures will be in place between Saturday 24th March and Thursday 29th March and then again after the Easter Bank Holiday weekend between Tuesday 3rd April and Friday 6th April.

More details about these works can be found in the Latest News section on the A52 Scheme webpage and in this article from Council News.

Wyvern Way/Stanier Way junction improvement works

The road layout at Wyvern Way/Stanier Way junction was altered during the evening of 21st March as part of the next phase of work to construct a new roundabout at this junction. A few issues with this junction were raised and changes to the road markings were made overnight on 22nd March. We will continue to monitor the situation.

Area between the A52 and park near to Waterford Drive 

On Friday 16th March pupils from Meadow Farm Community Primary School helped to plant over 120 trees in this area. In total 3,200 trees have been planted, with help from the Trees for Cities project.  Further details are in this article from Council News.

Footbridge from Meadow Lane, Chaddesden, to Wyvern Retail Park 

At the end of the existing footbridge on the Wyvern side, a ramp has been created leading to a temporary pedestrian crossing. The area between Wyvern Way and Toys R Us car park has been fenced off for safety reasons whilst work takes place in the area. The footbridge will stay in place whilst the replacement footbridge is constructed from Meadow Lane to the Wyvern Retail Park.

Further details about the scheme are on the A52 Scheme webpage. This will be regularly updated as the Scheme progresses.

All subject to contract and availability

In March 2017 Highways England confirmed a £2.6m contribution towards the A52 Wyvern Transport Improvement Scheme from the Growth and Housing Fund. A stage 2 application for £6.72m funding towards the Scheme was approved by the D2N2 LEP in July 2017 and the funding agreement completed in September.

Negotiations on the target price have continued with Galliford Try, the main contractor, and it is anticipated that the main works contract will be signed by 6th October 2017.

We are preparing to start the first phase of the main construction works which will involve road closures on the A52 Brian Clough Way. Initially, during the week commencing 9th October 2017 we will need to close the A52 Westbound, from Raynesway to Pentagon, for 2/3 nights between 8.00pm and 6.00am. We will be erecting temporary safety barriers, which will mean the width of the main carriageway will be reduced for the duration of the works on the A52, but two lanes will be maintained.

Once the barriers are in place, the A52 Eastbound, Pentagon to Raynesway, will be closed overnight from 8.00pm to 6.00 am. The road closures will commence on 12th October 2017 and will last up to 20 weeks.  Two narrow running lanes will operate in the daytime.

  • From 11th to 22nd December 2017, the road will not close until 10.00pm.
  • When Derby County Football Club are playing midweek home games, the road will not be closed until after 11.00pm.
  • From 23rd December 2017 to 7th January 2018 no works will be carried out and there will be no road closures.

PDF Drawings showing the routes affected and the proposed diversions are available on the A52 Scheme webpage

Works will include reducing the width of the central reserve to give more room to widen the carriageway. This will then enable us to create additional lanes in each direction.  Eastbound the third lane will be from the Wyvern Way slip road to the diverge to Raynesway/Spondon. As well as increasing capacity, the additional lane will reduce the need for drivers to change lanes.

When the works have been completed on the eastbound side it will be fully operational and work will then commence on the other side of the carriageway.  Works on the A52 Westbound and Wyvern Junctions will be carried out during the daytime and two narrow lanes will be kept open throughout. This phase is planned to start in March 2018 and will last around 20 weeks.

News articles and more information about the Scheme is available on the webpage. We will be issuing regular scheme updates as well as news on Derby Newsroom, along with Twitter and Facebook updates.

A dedicated group of TC Harrison Ford employees and relatives have successfully completed a fundraising walk in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

The walk, 17 September, took the team from our Burton-Upon-Trent dealership to our Pride Park Ford Superstore.

The 14 mile dealership to dealership walk took just over 4 hours to complete, with a short pit stop for lunch. With the route taking them through the beautiful Staffordshire and Derbyshire scenery, including the canal path pictured below.

The team were also greatly motivated by the number of ‘pips’ from motorists along the way, especially those from loyal TC Harrison customers!

As the walk came to an end, with our Pride Park site in view, which was a very welcoming sight, some participants decided to jog to the finish line!

Thanks to our very generous sponsors, team TCH raised an impressive £1,340 for the British Heart Foundation.

As you may be aware, TC Harrison Ford work very closely with the British Heart Foundation and are proud to provide a public access defibrillator at our Pride Park dealership boundary and facilitate periodic CPR & defibrillator awareness sessions.

When you are next in the Pride Park area, please take the time to familiarise yourself with the defibrillator location (very easy to spot) and make your customers, colleagues, friends and family aware of it’s provision and location.

We hope it never has to be used, but the more people aware of it’s availability and location the better.

Our defibrillator has been in place since February 2016 and to date has been deployed three times by East Midlands Ambulance Service, through giving directions to the 999 caller. So, if you are already aware of the location it will save precious time in a emergency.

The below photo shows the defibrillator location, in relation to our Pride Park Ford Superstore main building.
