Council News - 24th May 2019 - Work to commence on next phase of A52 Scheme 

 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.  Between June and September there will be an intensified programme of work to take full advantage of the summer period when peak time traffic levels are typically reduced by up to 30%. 

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. A52-Wyvern_Slip_Road_Diversion_Plan
