A52 Nottingham junctions

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

Region:  East Midlands
Start date:  2017
Cost:  TBC
Status:  CURRENT
Type:  Improvement Scheme
End date:  2023-24
Programme:  

Progress report

We will be coming out to repair the damaged road surface at Nottingham Road and Cropwell Road junctions along the A52 in Radcliffe-on-Trent for the safety of our customers.

To carry out these works safely we will need to close the road overnight and at Cropwell Road we need to close one lane eastbound (towards Bingham) during the daytime.

You can find the latest closure information in the Roadworks section. You can also view the diversion routes.

What's next?

We’ll engage with our stakeholders and members of the public on our plans for Gamston, Stragglethorpe, Bingham and Silverdale junctions in summer 2019.

We’re aiming to announce the preferred route for Nottingham Knight and Wheatcroft junctions in winter 2019.

Community news

The A52 is the key east-west link across the East Midlands. The A52 route currently faces congestion during peak travel hours caused by the volume of traffic using the network. Stragglethorpe junction on the A52 is one of the junctions identified for improvements. The current proposal is to remove the u-turn facility at the Stragglethorpe junction and also to ban all motorised vehicles, including horse drawn vehicles, from entering or leaving Sandays Lane.

We're aware that there are some concerns around the proposed removal of the u-turn facility at Stragglethorpe junction. We're proposing to hold a fixed-term trial of the proposed u-turn ban to allow us to observe conditions from both before and during the temporary ban, from a number of perspectives. We want to end up with a complete picture of the likely impact of what we're proposing in comparison to the current challenges that are faced when joining and leaving the road from the driveways that are directly on the A52 and Bassingfield Lane.

We held a residents' meeting at Gamston Village Hall on 20 November 2018 to discuss the concerns around the proposed removal of the u-turn facility at Stragglethorpe junction with the local community, and we'll continue to engage with them.

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.

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

The scheme in detail

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.
