A52 Nottingham JunctionsRecently updated

Improvements to a number of junctions along the A52 to improve traffic flow.

Region:  East Midlands
Start date:  January 2017
Cost:  TBC
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Improvement Scheme
End date:  TBC
Programme:  

Progress report

We will complete the improvements at the Nottingham Road junction by the end of June 2017. Following on from this we will resurface the carriageway and renew the road markings at the junction.

The resurfacing work will extend from the railway bridge (on the A52 western side) through to Lees Barn Road (on the eastern side). This combines resurfacing required as part of the junction scheme with longer term highway maintenance work on the A52.

Check the roadworks search for details of closures.

We will look to reduce the number of closures and open up parts of the A52 during these closures. We may need a full closure of the A52 in both directions on a couple of nights for the safety of road users and our workforce.

View diversion routes in place during closures.

Pedestrian and cyclists will be unaffected. We liaised with the bus companies and they will put arrangements in place to ensure that passengers’ journeys are not disrupted.

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
