A52 Nottingham JunctionsRecently updated

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

Region:  East Midlands

Type:  Improvement Scheme

Remedial works

A series of junctions were identified and designed to improve traffic flow along the entire A52 route. Nottingham Road and Cropwell Road junctions were the first to be constructed.

We completed improvements at the Nottingham Road junction in July 2017 and the Cropwell Road junction in September 2017. At Nottingham Road a dedicated U-turn facility, wide enough for lorries to turn with ease, was built. 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.

We are aware that there is an issue with the road surfacing at Cropwell Road and Nottingham Road. We have spoken to our contractors, who carried out the surfacing and they have advised us that the broken surfacing may have been caused by unfavourable weather when the work was done and the extremely cold winter experienced earlier this year may also be a contributing factor.

These works are safety critical, and we’re working with our contractors to get the repair work done as promptly as possible.

Next steps

We were due to begin some remedial work to repair the damaged road surface at the Cropwell Road and Nottingham Road junctions along the A52 in Radcliffe-on-Trent on the night of 28 August. Before our contractor could begin this work, there was an incident at the site which has meant that we need to review our security arrangements before being able to continue with this work safely.

As a result, we have taken the decision to cancel the scheduled work for the remainder of the week beginning 27 August, while we seek advice from Nottinghamshire Police. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause, but the safety of our staff and contractors is an absolute priority. We will look to reschedule the work as soon as we possibly can, and will publish further details on our website in due course.

Progress report

A52 Nottingham Road junction and 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
