In the coming months, Derby City Council’s Highways team will be undertaking work to repair the remaining section of Chaddesden Lane, between Maine Drive and Reginald Road South.

The work schedule is as follows:

  • Sunday 13 January – a one-day road closure. This is to complete a drainage investigation and complete a ground radar survey before work starts.
  • Week commencing Monday 11 February – the contractor will be setting up on site.
  • Saturday 16 February to Sunday 24 February – a full closure to complete drainage work, to repair the culvert for the full length of the closure (Reginald Road South to Maine Drive).
  • Thursday 11 April to Sunday 28 April – a full closure to complete any remaining drainage work. We will also be resurfacing Chaddesden Lane, including the roundabout and into Maine Drive, up to the doctor’s surgery. This will include an element of reconstruction of the road, to ensure it is robust for this busy route.

Some work will be happening outside of these dates on Maine Drive, along the front gardens of some properties. This is essential to build a new drain which will connect to the culvert underneath Chaddesden Lane. This should not affect traffic flows.

The scheme is covering approximately 1,100sqm. Road closures will be carried out during school holidays to minimise disruption to the surrounding schools. Signed diversion routes will be in operation when required. The hours of work will be 8.00am to 5.00pm, including Saturdays and Sundays (if necessary). All road markings will be replaced soon after work is completed.

The scheme will be completed by Eurovia Infrastructure Ltd on behalf of Derby City Council.

Roadside boards will be erected on the road to advise residents and road users of upcoming work. Residents in the affected streets have also been sent letters to explain what work is being done and how it will affect them. During the work the bus services will be diverted. Please look out for information signs for details of how these routes will change.

During the work, we need to ensure safety at all times; as a result, you may experience some delays in gaining access. Eurovia will contact residents who are directly affected by the work to make sure everyone is informed of progress. Please advise them of any mobility requirements and they will assist you.

If you have any questions regarding the scheme itself, please contact We appreciate your patience while we carry out this project.
