Road Closures Due to Flooding in Derby

Alert message sent 08/11/2019 19:07:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary


The A52 westbound from the Pentagon is currently impassable due to flooding, any traffic heading in this direction will be diverted either towards Chaddesden or back on to the eastbound carriageway of the A52.

If you’re set to drive to Derby from the M1, we would advise you find another route in to the city if you absolutely need to make the journey.

Derby as a whole is facing severe traffic issues, the bus station is still open despite being evacuated earlier but all routes are facing major delays.

In addition to this, the A61 is currently closed between the Pektron island and the Little Eaton island whilst our partners remove horses from an adjoining field, following concerns for their safety.

The following roads are also presently closed:

• Sowter Road
• Haslems Lane
• Ford Lane
• Darley Park footpath
• Eastgate footpath
• Meadow road closed
• Raynesway service road
• Station Approach

We are continuing to urge drivers to plan driving routes that avoid low lying roads near rivers which may be flooded, and if you live near a potential flood zone, to move possessions and valuables off the ground or to safety.

To check the flood warnings in your area, please visit the gov.uk website: https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/warnings

The advice remains the same to avoid roads that are closed, and not to drive through flood waters or ignore road closed signs. These are in place for your safety.
