Junction improvement for use by all traffic
Highways England
Region: East Midlands
Central Government

The aim of this scheme is to upgrade three roundabout junctions to the west and north of Derby in order to allow A38 traffic to flow freely through the junctions, and thus improve safety and reduce congestion. The three junctions to be upgraded are the A38/A5111 Kingsway junction, the A38/A52 Markeaton junction, and the A38/A61 Little Eaton junction.

The current preferred option is to lower the A38 into underpasses at the Kingsway and Markeaton junctions, and to re-align the A38 on an embankment to the south and east of the Little Eaton junction. Parts of the road will also be widened to three lanes each way, and some local access roads will be closed.

Public consultations took place in 2002 and 2003, and interim improvements were made to the junctions in 2004 and 2014. Funding for this scheme was announced in June 2013.
