Match Day Travel

Here's some information regarding the A52 Wyvern Transport Improvement Scheme works, that could impact on your journey to and from the match.


From Friday 20th September, pedestrians will not be able to use the footpath on Wyvern Way (outside Burger King) and will need to follow the signed diversion routes.

From Pride Park, the alternative safe pedestrian route will be from Roundabout 1 (near Frankie and Benny's) then along Derwent Parade, on the same side as the football stadium, towards Wyvern Way.

Pedestrians travelling along the Riverside Path, out of Derby city centre, will be diverted under Derwent Parade to the south side Derwent Parade footpath.

Pedestrians travelling to the Highfield Lane bridge, to cross the A52 towards Chaddesden, will need to use the signed crossing points on Wyvern Way (outside KFC) to access Wyvernside and Chequers Road, and the same in the opposite direction.

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.

To allow for works to continue on Wyvern Way, there will be temporary arrangements in place.  A concrete barrier is separating the lanes on Wyvern Way.  Traffic will only be able to enter Pullman Road and The Sidings in an eastbound direction from Derwent Parade roundabout.  Temporary two-way traffic signals are in place at the junction with Pullman Road and Wyvern Way.

  • Vehicles will not be able to turn right from Wyvern Way into Pullman Road or The Sidings.
  • Vehicles exiting from Pullman Road and The Sidings will need to turn left towards Stanier Way roundabout.

The westbound on-slip road remains closed from the Wyvern towards Derby City Centre.  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.
