Region:  East Midlands
Start date:  2019/20
Cost:  £200 – £250 million
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Improvement Scheme
End date:  2022/23
Programme:  Regional Investment Strategy

Progress report

Over the past few months and specifically since we made the preferred route announcement (PRA) at the end of January, we’ve been completing a number of additional surveys.

We’ve also been continuing to meet with many scheme stakeholders to explain our proposals, and outline the processes that we’re following to apply for permission to construct and operate the scheme.

We’ve also been planning the statutory consultation that will take place in September/ October this year. We have created a new newsletter which summarises all of these things and offers some more information. This can be viewed in the 'Media and Documents' section below.

What's next

The statutory scheme consultation will start later this year (in September) and will run for 6 weeks. This will help to shape our proposals before we submit our application for a Development Consent Order (DCO) – the special type of planning permission that we need. We will be writing out to scheme stakeholders in the coming weeks and months to outline how the consultation will work, and how to get involved and have your say.

Why we need this scheme

The Kingsway, Markeaton and Little Eaton junctions on the A38 currently suffer from heavy congestion. We are making improvements to these junctions to relieve this congestion.

Aims

The aims of the scheme are to:
  • reduce congestion
  • increase capacity
  • improve journey time reliability
  • improve road safety
  • support local regeneration and development plans
