You can more details about the maintenance schemes taking place in the East Midlands below:

We will be carrying out works to combine essential maintenance, technical surveys and testing in advance of several planned maintenance and improvement schemes.

The work will be carried out overnight Monday to Friday, from 8pm and 6am and will require the closure of the A52 in both directions, between QMC roundabout and Priory roundabout, with lane closures on the approach to the works. During the day we will keep the carriageway open as usual. Some weekend working may also be required.

Diversions

There are two diversion routes depending upon which closure is being approached. All diversion routes will be signed.

A52 Derby Road closure between the Priory roundabout and QMC roundabout.

The diversion route can be used in either direction and follows A6464 Woodside Road, onto A6005 University Boulevard, join A52 Clifton Boulevard travelling north, diversion ends at the QMC roundabout.

Exit and entry slip road closures at Dunkirk Island

Traffic will be unable to either exit or enter the A52 Clifton Road at this interchange. It will be directed to travel on the A52 Clifton Road southbound, exit at the A453 Queens Drive (signed City Centre) and re-join the A52 Clifton Road northbound to the exit at Dunkirk Island where traffic requiring the A52 Clifton Road northbound remains on the main carriageway and those diverted from the closed southbound exit to leave the main A52 Clifton Road.

We will do our very best to complete the work as quickly as possible, keeping disturbances and noise to a minimum.

 

We’re carrying out essential carriageway maintenance work to the M1, on the northbound and southbound carriageways, between junctions 23a and 25. We’ll resurface sections of the carriageway and refresh road markings, to provide a smoother and safer carriageway for customers.

 We’ll work on one side of the carriageway at a time. Work will start on the southbound carriageway, switching to the northbound carriageway approximately halfway through the scheme.

Works will take place overnight, from Monday 15 March 2021 until Tuesday 20 April 2021. We will stop work over the Easter weekend from Thursday 1 April and resume on Tuesday 6 April.

We will work Monday to Saturday, between the hours of 8pm and 6am. On Saturday and Sunday mornings, lane closures will be in place until approximately 9am.

In addition to this, we will also carry out works on Sunday 21 March.

During the works it will be necessary to have a few slip road closures, which will include the following at various dates:

  • junction 24a southbound exit slip road closed (diversion via junction 24)
  • junction 25 southbound entry slip road closed (diversion via junction 26)
  • junction 24 northbound entry slip road closed (diversion via A50 Sawley roundabout to junction 24)
  • junction 25 northbound exit slip road closed (diversion via junction 26)

During the slip road closures, we’ll put in place a diversion route which we’ve agreed with the Local Authority. The slip roads will remain open outside of our working hours.

Please note that all our planned roadworks may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

We will be carrying out work to protect the structure from water damage and prevent further disruptive repairs in the future

The work will be carried out under full weekend closures from 8pm Friday to 6am Monday and will require the closure of the north bridge over the M1 at junction 20, Lutterworth.

We will do our very best to complete the work as quickly as possible, keeping disturbances and noise to a minimum.

Diversion route 

NORTH BRIDGE CLOSURE: Local traffic from the A4303 at M1 junction 20 will be diverted through Lutterworth on the A426. Turn onto the Gilmorton Road then onto Lutterworth Road heading east to Kimcote. From Kimcote follow Walton Road into Gurney Lane and then Kilworth Road. At North Kilworth travel westbound on the A4304 Lutterworth Road until, at junction 20 Lutterworth, diversion ends.

Southbound motorway traffic approaching junction 20 from the A4304 will be directed to join the M1 southbound at Junction 20 as normal. Southbound motorway traffic approaching junction 20 from the A4303 will be directed to join the M1 northbound at junction, exit at junction 21 and rejoin the M1 Southbound and diversion route will end when they pass under Junction 20 heading southbound.

All diversion routes will be signed.
