Bus service changes for 12 weeks – A52 near QMC gas pipe works

Cadent Gas is replacing 2,000 metres of gas pipes under part of Derby Road, which runs between the QMC and Priory roundabouts.

This work starts on Monday 9th January 2023 and will take approximately 12 weeks to complete, with diversions in place throughout on Orange 34C within University Park Campus, Orange 35 buses towards Bulwell and Orange 36 buses towards Beeston and Chilwell.

Nottingham City Transport updates:

If you are travelling to the QMC, we will continue to pick up and drop off at the same stops we normally do.

The closure of Derby Road in one direction will place pressure on surrounding roads as people find alternative ways to make their journeys. We anticipate delays to Pink 28, 30; Orange 34, 35, 36 and Grey 53, 54 buses during these works.

Here’s how services will operate (there is a map lower down the page):

Orange 34, 34C, N34

The University of Nottingham are stopping access through University Park during these works for most of the day.

N34 will be able to operate its normal route overnight via Beeston Lane, but the 34C will not be able to operate around the campus loop during these works. All 34C buses will operate as a 34 terminating on East Drive.

Orange 35, 35A, 35B

Buses towards the City will follow their normal route. Stops on Derby Road between Priory roundabout and University North Entrance may be relocated.

Buses towards Wollaton Vale, Bilborough and Bulwell will follow their normal route to serve the stop outside QMC. They will then divert along left Clifton Boulevard to Dunkirk, right Beeston Road, continuing the full length of University Boulevard to the roundabout outside University West Entrance, then continuing along Woodside Road to resume normal route along Wollaton Vale.

All stops on the diversion route will be served.

Orange 36, 36U

Buses towards the City will follow their normal route. Stops on Derby Road between the Priory roundabout and University North Entrance may be relocated.

Buses towards Beeston and Chilwell will follow their normal route to serve the stop outside QMC. They will then divert along left Clifton Boulevard to Dunkirk, right Beeston Road, continuing the full length of University Boulevard to the roundabout outside University West Entrance, where they will turn left onto Broadgate and resume their normal route.

All stops on the diversion route will be served.

If you normally travel from the City to Woodside Road, you will need to use the diverted Orange 35, which will drop off at stops along Woodside Road.

During these works, it is not possible to catch a bus from Woodside Road towards Beeston or Chilwell and the nearest alternative stop will be near the Co-op at University West Entrance (same side of the road as the Co-op) or on Broadgate.

•  Major traffic disruption expected as A52 part-closes near QMC for 12 weeks

The University of Nottingham is stopping access through University Park during these works, so it will not be possible for the 36U to serve University Park. If you are heading to University Park, please use Orange 34 only.
