Progress report

We began construction in January 2017 at Cropwell Road and Nottingham Road junctions. At present these works are programmed to last for approximately 14 weeks.

We have carefully planned the work to ensure minimal disruption to road users and local residents and businesses. During construction, both junctions will remain operational. However temporary restrictions will be required at some times to allow for specific activities. At these times appropriate diversion routes will be clearly signed, providing users with a safe alternative route to their destination.

From the night of Tuesday January 31 we will use the following traffic management at the Cropwell Road junction with A52:

  • permanent single lane running, on A52, through Cropwell Road junction in both directions
  • disconnection of the traffic signals
  • installation of a push button pedestrian crossing
  • barriers to stop any right turns (in to Cropwell Road, North or South) and the crossing of A52
  • the main service bus stops will become temporary and locations will change to the approaches to Cropwell Road junction instead of on the exits where vehicles will be accelerating, the bus stops will always remain operational

During this traffic management Nottinghamshire County Council will introduced waiting restrictions on a section of Cropwell Road. This will consist of a single yellow line and associated signs, to assist school bus operations.

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 in detail

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.

During the works we will:

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

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
