A52 Nottingham junctions
The A52 experiences congestion at many junctions, resulting in significant queuing and delays. We've identified several junctions for improvement, to reduce congestion and provide capacity for more traffic from local developments.
The scheme, announced in 2014 as part of the government’s Road Investment Strategy, consists of a package of measures to improve several junctions along the length of the A52 in Nottingham, including signalisation and junction reconstruction.
The improvements at Nottingham Road and Cropwell Road junctions are now complete and open to traffic. Next, we'll address the four smaller junctions (Silverdale, Bingham, Stragglethorpe and Gamston junctions), and in the final phase we'll address the two larger western junctions, Nottingham Knight and Wheatcroft.
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
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
