UPDATE Wednesday 18 March

Derbyshire County Council will now also be carrying out work in conjunction with the road closure we have in place this week. The work will include resurfacing of the road from the railway bridge on Stenson Road to Grampian Way island including the railway bridge itself. Working with our neighbouring authority on this project will improve condition at this location and minimise disruption caused to all highway users.


Off-peak road closures will be in place on Stenson Road for one week, starting on Monday 16 March to allow resurfacing works to take place. Residents and regular users of the road are being asked to allow extra time for their journeys.

Stenson Road will be closed between the Grampian Way roundabout and Oaklands Avenue junction from 9.30am to 3.30pm each day. The road will be open as normal outside of these hours and residents will be able to access their homes at all times.

During the road closures a fully signed diversion route will be in place.

The works have been scheduled following a number of visits to the area in response to reports from local residents. The new road surface will improve skid resistance and make journeys safer and smoother.

We understand that roadworks are frustrating for residents and those who regularly use this route. However, off-peak closures will allow us to complete the work quickly and safely with the least amount of disruption. We’d like to thank everyone for their patience while we carry out this essential work.

The works are being completed by Thomas Bow Ltd. on behalf of Derby City Council.
