Motorists may have to deal with one lane only on the eastbound stretch of the A52 at Clifton Bridge.
Highways Agency engineers are working at the scene, efforts are being made to try to open one eastbound lane in time for today’s rush hour ( Wednesday 12 February ) but no time has been confirmed yet.
This situation could then continue for two weeks.
Further inspections underneath the bridge will take place this evening.
Until further updates the diversion and closure details are below updates 13:09:
The A52 Clifton Bridge in Nottinghamshire is closed eastbound within the junction of the A453 junction at Queens Drive Interchange. Repair teams are carrying out repair work on damaged steel underneath the road, prompting the closure of the eastbound carriageway. In addition to the eastbound carriageway closure, lane 2 will be closed westbound heading into Nottingham, and the A52 eastbound entry slip from the A6005 near Queen’s Medical Centre is also closed.
The diversion route for the eastbound closure is as follows:
– From the A52 Queens Drive Interchange, take the exit onto the A453 towards the City Centre.
– Follow the A453 until at the junction with A6019, and then turn right onto the A6019 Waterway Street.
– Continue on the A6019, turning left onto Sheriffs Way, then right onto Queens Road.
– At the T junction, turn right onto the A60, crossing the River Trent.
– At the junction with Melton Road, take the left fork onto the A606 through West Bridgford, to rejoin the eastbound A52 at Wheatcroft Island.
Traffic wishing to reach the A52 (Grantham) from the M1 southbound J25 should remain on the M1 to J24, then at the roundabout take the first exit onto the A453 northbound. Continue on the A453 northbound, past Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station, to the junction with the A52, then follow hard signs for the A52 (Grantham).
