Progress report

We held three public information events on the improvement works in December 2016.

We will begin construction work on Monday 16 January 2017 at Crowell Road and Nottingham Road Junctions. The work is expected to last approximately 14 weeks.

We have carefully planned the work to ensure minimal disruption to road users and local residents and businesses.

We will be be:

  • widening the carriageway
  • upgrading the pedestrian crossing facilities
  • installing new traffic signals and signs
  • installing new street lighting
  • upgrading the existing drainage system
  • resurfacing the road and renewing road markings from the railway bridge (on the A52 western side) through to Lees Barn Road (on the eastern side)

What next?

We have developed preferred layouts for Gamston roundabout, Stragglethorpe Road and Bingham Road junctions and we will begin construction in 2017/18, subject to funding.

The remaining junctions along the A52 Nottingham corridor will be investigated and, where necessary, we will develop options to be assessed.

Why we need the scheme

The A52 is an important east-west link across the East Midlands. This route experiences congestion due to capacity issues at many junctions, which results in significant queuing and delays. Several junctions have been identified as requiring improvements to cope with the existing problems, as well as to provide capacity for the increase in traffic anticipated when local developments are completed.

The scheme, announced in 2014 as part of the government’s Road Investment Strategy, consists of a 2-phase package of measures to improve the junctions along the length of the A52 in Nottingham, including signalisation and junction reconstruction.

The first phase will address the eastern junctions, from Gamston to Bingham Road, and the second phase will address the western junctions, from QMC Island to Wheatcroft.

Aims

The scheme aims to:

  • reduce queuing and delays
  • ease congestion by increasing capacity at the junctions
  • ensure journey times are more reliable
  • improve pedestrian and cycle routes at the junctions
  • make the road safer for all users
  • support growth in the area
