Section of A52 Derby Road to close in new year

December 13th, 2022

From Monday 9 January 2023 to Friday 31 March 2023, the westbound carriageway of the A52 Derby Road will be closed from the QMC roundabout junction as Cadent Gas carry out important upgrades to their gas network.

Severe congestion and delays are expected and diversions around University Boulevard will be in place from 9 January.

People are encouraged to plan ahead and use alternate routes where possible while the works take place.

The area around University Park (specifically North entrance) will mainly be impacted, but traffic around Jubilee and Kings Meadow Campuses are also expected to be affected.

The university is currently investigating ways to ease the impact of the works and will communicate final plans in the coming weeks.

Alternative routes to the university are also encouraged during this time, and the university has a number of initiatives to help out, including:

Public transport

The university in collaboration with a number of public transport operators across the city offer a number of travel pass schemes. They offer staff the opportunity to purchase travel passes through salary deductions – there are a range of these available to support differing work patterns, many at discounted rates.

Cycle to Work

Cycling to work offers a flexible, fit and sustainable way to travel between our campuses and elsewhere. The university offers a comprehensive Cycle to Work scheme accessible through the Employee Hub and has increased the value of the scheme to enable staff to purchase bicycles up to the value of £2,000.
