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.
For approximately 3 weeks starting from Tuesday the 23rd of August 2017, the construction works at Duke Street require the road to be closed to vehicles, affecting travel to and from the Handyside Street area. The route will still be open to pedestrians. Road Closure and Diversion signs will be in place during this time. Please see the OCOR website, twitter, Facebook pages and site posters for information about the diversions.
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.

Location of Road Closure (Red Box)
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.
