Public exhibitions on A52 Nottingham junctions upgrade

Highways Agency 5th January 2017

Motorists can find out more about plans to improve journey times and ease congestion on the A52 in Nottingham as a series of public exhibitions starting this week.

The A52 is a key east-west link across the East Midlands connecting people, communities and businesses. Highways England is upgrading the junctions along this route to reduce congestion and improve journey times for motorists. Extra capacity will be added to help future proof the route to cope with the increase in traffic expected when housing developments come to fruition.

The scheme consists of two packages of work involving improving junctions along the length of the A52 in Nottingham, including the introduction of new traffic signals. Work on two of the junctions (Nottingham Road junction - also known as the RSPCA junction and the Cropwell Road junction) is expected to start in early January 2017.

Khalid Pervez, Highways England project manager, said:

This work will bring a major benefit to people who use this busy route each and every day. The junction improvements when fully implemented along this route will improve the journey times of motorists in the long term and we will be working hard to keep disruption to a minimum while the work takes place.

To improve the flow of traffic at Nottingham Road junction, work will take place to widen the road on the northern side, with a new lane added and new traffic lights installed on all approaches to the junction. The junction will allow drivers to make a U-turn movement, which drivers will no longer be able to do at the Stragglethorpe junction.

The work at Cropwell Road will see the road widened through the junction in both directions and new traffic signals installed to improve capacity and safety for vehicles making right turns onto Cropwell Road. To increase the safety of pedestrians new and improved footpaths and crossings will also be installed at both junctions.

Construction will take place overnight between 8pm and 6am when the road is at its quietest. Highways England will ensure any noisy work takes place before midnight and methods will be used to reduce the amount of noise. Any works taking place during the day will be carefully managed to reduce impact and delay for road users.

People attending the exhibitions will be able to see detailed plans of the proposals, find out more about the scheme and ask questions of the project team.

The events will take place as follows:

  • Saturday December 10, 10am to 2pm St Mary’s Hall, Main Road, Radcliffe-on-Trent, NG12 2FD
  • Monday December 12, 12noon to 4pm, St Mary’s Hall, Main Road, Radcliffe-on-Trent, NG12 2FD
  • Thursday December 15, 4pm to 8pm, Gamston Village Hall, Old Tollerton Road, Gamston, NG2 6NX
