A52 Brian Clough Way Eastbound - daytime off-peak lane closure
There will be an off-peak lane closure on the A52 Eastbound carriageway, from 9.30am to 3.00pm each day, on Wednesday 15 January, Thursday 16 January, Monday 20 January and Tuesday 21 January 2020. The inside lane will be closed between Pentagon Island and Wyvern whilst further barrier works are carried out. The slip road off the A52 to Wyvern Way will be open as normal.
Wyvern Way - pedestrian route re-opened and daytime works continue
Overnight works on Wyvern Way were completed as planned by 23rd November. Despite the issues with flooding and heavy rain, most of the planned work was completed over this two week period of extra night-time working.
Work will continue in this area in the daytime in the run up to Christmas.
Pedestrian route - Derwent Parade/Wyvern Way
From Saturday 23rd November, the footway from Derwent Parade was re-opened. Pedestrians are now able to get from Derwent Parade, past Burger King to Wyvernside.
Wyvern Way - between Derwent Parade and Stanier Way
From Monday 25th November, there were some traffic management layout changes on Wyvern Way between Derwent Parade and Stanier Way whilst work continues in the area. The temporary arrangements will continue with traffic only able to enter Pullman Road and The Sidings in an eastbound direction from Derwent Parade roundabout.
The concrete barrier separating the lanes on Wyvern Way has been removed and work is taking place to construct the road along the centre of Wyvern Way.
Work to repair the parapet on the A52 Wyvern overbridge was carried out as planned overnight on Friday 29th November. We also replaced the VMS signs on this stretch of road. Whilst the road was closed our colleagues in Highways Maintenance cleared all the gulleys on the A52 Eastbound between Pentagon and Raynesway, and our Arboricultural Team cut back trees along the footpath between Meadow Lane and Highfield Lane, helping to make the area safer during the evening.
A52 off-slip to Wyvern Way and Wyvern Way roundabouts
The new slip road from the A52 westbound, towards Derby city centre, was opened on Monday 9th September. Drivers can also now benefit from the additional lane on the A52 westbound carriageway from the Raynesway on-slip to Wyvern Way.
The two roundabouts on Wyvern Way – Derwent Parade and Stanier Way - are now open and operating with single lanes of traffic on a temporary basis whilst work is completed in the area.
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.
Wyvern Way on slip to A52 westbound (towards Derby city centre) – closed from 3rd June 2019 for 13 months
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.
Meadow Lane Footbridge
Meadow Lane Footbridge has now been demolished. The replacement bridge is expected to be opened in Spring 2020. Pedestrians will need to use the Highfield Lane footbridge, where diversions will be in place along Chequers Road and Wyvernside.
