February 7th, 2020
Between Monday 17 February and mid-April 2020, Highways England will be carrying out safety improvement works on the A52 Eastbound and Westbound carriageways between the Bramcote and Priory roundabouts.
To keep the programme for works as short as possible and to minimise disruption to the local community, residents, businesses and road users, the work will be undertaken between 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday.
The scheme of work involves installing six average speed safety camera masts within the central reservation. These will be fitted with 24 cameras. New safety signs, control cabinets, electrical cables and associated ducting will also be installed.
How will the work affect traffic?
Highways England will work using a mixture of overnight lane closures and full carriageway closures. The works will be mainly completed under overnight lane closures. To minimise inconvenience and disruption, one carriageway at a time will be worked on and roads will be closed in phases.
During full road closures, signed diversion routes will be put in place – but all carriageways are expected to remain open throughout the daytime.
Please note: All planned works may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.
How will the work affect businesses, residents, pedestrians and/or cyclists?
Access to residences will be maintained wherever possible.
For safety reasons, Highways England will need to close some sections of the footpath/cycleway along the A52 Westbound carriageway while they work.
Alternative arrangements will be made for pedestrians and cyclists so they can continue their journeys safely. Footpaths and cycleways will remain open as usual outside of the planned working hours.
For any questions about this work, please email Highways England’s Public Liaison Officer, Irene Plant or call 07768 796 542.
