Match Day Travel

As the new 19/20 football season approaches quickly, here's some information regarding the A52 Wyvern Transport Improvement Scheme works, that could impact on your journey to and from the match.

Diversion route for DCFC matches - July 2019


Following the demolition of the Meadow Lane footbridge, all fans who are crossing the A52 from the Chaddesden area, will need to use the Highfield Lane footbridge.  Please allow extra time for your journey at peak times.



If your travelling on the westbound carriageway, please be aware that the on and off slip roads are closed at the Wyvern.  

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
