Progress report

A52 Nottingham Road junction & A52 Cropwell Road junction

We completed improvements at the Nottingham Road junction in July and the Cropwell Road junction in September 2017. Safety and flow of traffic at these junctions have been improved by the addition of new traffic signals and pedestrian crossings. Street lighting, road signs and road surfacing have all been replaced to reduce the need for maintenance work in the near future.

At Nottingham Road a U-turn facility has been provided to replace the facility which will be removed from Stragglethorpe junction.

What next?

Gamston roundabout, Stragglethorpe Road and Bingham Road junctions

We have developed preferred layouts for Gamston roundabout, Stragglethorpe Road and Bingham Road junctions. We have programmed construction to commence in the 2019/20 financial year. However, we may look to bring this forward to 2018/19 subject to coordination with other work planned in the area, to minimise road user disruption and impact on local residents.

This will also give us time to engage with our stakeholders and members of the public on both our plans and feedback received from the junctions which have been completed.

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.

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
