Progress report

The statutory public consultation for the A38 Derby Junctions scheme started on 7 September 2018. It ran for six weeks, closing on 18 October 2018.

In the days leading up to the start of the consultation, we wrote out to people living within 500 metres of the road. We also placed adverts in a number of papers (local and national press) to ensure that local people were aware of the consultation.

What's next

Now that the consultation has closed we’ll analyse your feedback, consider all of the suggestions made, and respond in the report that we will prepare on the consultation.

The views you have provided will help the Secretary of State for Transport make a decision on our application.

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

Guidance for people whose property may be affected by one of our schemes

Sometimes the development of one of our road improvement schemes creates an impact on the properties of people living along or close to the route of the scheme. There are a number of examples where this may be the case – for instance, the sale value of a property may be adversely affected by the change in the environment around it. This could be because of additional noise from a new road, or a significant change in view from the property.

We have produced a series of documents that explain your rights in circumstances such as these, and set out examples in which you may be entitled to compensation. Please choose from the list of publications below to find out more:
