Improvement works on the A52 junctions in UK

National Highways has already completed improvement work at the 2017-opened Nottingham Road and Cropwell Road junctions. The four remaining smaller junctions—Bingham, Stragglethorpe, and Silverdale—began construction in 2021 and are now all finished. Beginning in January 2022, work at Gamston is expected to end this spring.

“We are looking forward to continuing our successful relationship with National Highways to complete the last component in an integrated series of works that will have a positive impact on travel in this region,” said Steve Haviland, Partnership Leader at Griffiths Farrans Joint Venture.

“High-profile projects like this one show how crucial civil engineering is in offering a valuable, functional road infrastructure. We are creating a network that will support transportation and logistics and save lives. It will also enable the local economy to expand for years to come. Thus, it will be able to reduce congestion and enhance safety with this work.
