Our City Our River – Project Update

Created on Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

Temporary Road Closure & Footpath Diversion

As part of the ‘Our City Our River’ flood defence project, Derby City Council are carrying out construction work in various locations, including the Duke Street area.

For approximately 3 weeks starting from Tuesday the 23rd of August 2017, the construction works at Duke Street require the road to be closed to vehicles, affecting travel to and from the Handyside Street area. The route will still be open to pedestrians.

Road Closure and Diversion signs will be in place during this time. Please see the Our City Our River website, Twitter & Facebook pages and site posters for information about the diversions.

Derby City Council are working in partnership with contractor, GBV Ltd who are carrying out the construction works. They have a construction management plan in place and this covers issues such as noise mitigation, hours of work and traffic management requirements for construction vehicles.

If you would like to speak to someone about the work, please contact Peter Richardson, Site Agent at the City Road project compound on 07484 036691.
