The landscape on the A52 changed dramatically on Saturday 30th May as the brand new footbridge was successfully lifted into place by one of the UK’s largest cranes. You can now view our time lapse video of this key milestone online
Further work will be carried out over the next few weeks to the bridge and ramps, this includes applying the anti-slip deck surfacing and safety checks.
The foot and cycle bridge, measuring over 82 metres in length and hosting a 4.5 metre wide deck, will link the residential area of Chaddesden to the Wyvern and Pride Park, and is due to open to the public in late summer/early autumn.
Repair and maintenance work has now started on the Wyvern Way access bridge over the A52. This work will enhance the life of the bridge by replacing aging parts and renewing waterproofing to the deck.

From Sunday 7th June, the slip road off the A52 Eastbound to Wyvern Way will be closed 24/7 for approximately 17 weeks whilst work is carried out to the bridge.
