A52 Wyvern Westbound on and off slip road closures
Now that the Meadow Lane 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 create new slip roads both off and on to the A52.
From Monday 3 June 2019, the A52/Wyvern 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
Wyvern Way off slip from A52 westbound
To Pride Park/Wyvern - continue on A52 westbound to Pentagon Island, Eastgate, Holmes Bridge (A601), Pride Parkway (A6), Derwent Parade.
Wyvern Way on slip to A52 westbound
From Wyvern/Pride Park - Derwent Parade, Pride Parkway (A6), Holmes Bridge (A601), Darwin Place, Eastgate to Pentagon Island then onto A52 eastbound.
The demolition of Meadow Lane Footbridge has been completed ahead of schedule and the A52 Brian Clough Way is now fully open.
Work to demolish the footbridge on Friday night went as well as could be expected. The debris was then removed from the carriageway along with the temporary protective measures put in place prior to work starting. The carriageway has been swept and a final inspection carried out which meant the road could be opened early on Sunday 19 May.
Whilst the road was closed, teams from Highways, Grounds Maintenance and Street Cleansing carried out maintenance works on the areas outside of the safety cordon.
Diversion route for pedestrians
During the closure, pedestrians will be able to use the Highfield Lane footbridge, where diversions will be in place along Chequers Road and Wyvernside. A temporary pedestrian crossing has been installed on Wyvern Way to assist crossing to the Wyvern and Stanier Way Business Park.
