Temporary Road Closure & Footpath Diversion
As part of the Our City Our River flood defence project, we are carrying out construction work in various locations including the Duke Street area.
Over the next few weeks we will need to alternate the closure and opening of both Duke St and Sowter Rd to vehicles. These routes will still be open to pedestrians. Road Closure and Diversion signs will be in place during this time.
Duke Street -CLOSED -Friday 13th October – Wednesday 25th October 2017
Duke Street– OPEN – From Wednesday 25th October 2017 onwards
Sowter Road – CLOSED Wednesday 25th October for approximately 6 weeks
Sowter Road - OPEN Friday 13th October – Wednesday 25th October 2017
St Mary's Walk
On Monday 18th September 2017 St Mary’s Walk from Darley Lane down to Duke Street will close to pedestrians for approximately 12 weeks.
Diversion signs will be in place during this time.
We are working in partnership with our contractor, GBV Ltd who are carrying out the construction works. They have a construction management plan in place and this covers issues such as noise mitigation, hours of work and traffic management requirements for construction vehicles.
If you would like to speak to someone about the work, please contact Peter Richardson, Site Agent at the City Road project compound on 07484 036691.

New sports facilities are to be constructed to replace those lost due to the OCOR flood defence works. A planning application has been submitted and we are awaiting approval.
The site area is within the Derwent Valley World Heritage site, Chester Green Conservation area and mainly within the Little Chester Roman Scheduled monument. The proposals and detailed levels of excavation have been developed in conjunction with Heritage England and Derby City Council Conservation officers. Depths of excavation have been provisionally agreed and the nature of archaeological monitoring established. This is subject to Scheduled Monument Consent approval.
