Upgrading of the existing roundabout junction linking the A6 Alvaston Bypass to the A5111 Raynesway to a two-level junction.

The junction is being constructed to serve the New Raynesway development site.

Progress

14 November 2008 The Public Inquiry took place in September 2008 and a decision is awaited from the DfT.
12 December 2008 The DfT have today announced the decision to proceed with the scheme. Construction is expected to start in Spring 2009.
5 June 2009 There is no sign of anything happening on the ground yet.
11 August 2009 Work commenced on 11 August and signs warning of the roadworks have now been erected.
3 October 2009 Although traffic is still using the existing roundabout, works are progressing well on all sides of the junction.
15 December 2009 Traffic is now using a temporary road layout while the bridge works are undertaken.
5 March 2010 The junction is beginning to take shape, with bridge beams being lifted into place today.
24 July 2010 As of this morning drivers are now using the new bridge and slip roads while works are completed on the main dual carriageway link.
1 January 2011 The completion date has been delayed due to the civils contractor going into administration. A new contractor has now been appointed to complete the works.
1 February 2011 The new junction became fully operational on 29 January 2011.
