Part of a major Derby road will be closed for four days next week as resurfacing work takes place. Stenson Road will be shut from Tuesday, September 20, to allow the Derby City Council project to be carried out.

A section of the well-used route in Littleover will be closed from its junction with Gary Close to Oaklands Avenue. The road will be closed between 8am and 4pm each day, up to and including Friday, September 23.

As a result of the closure, a diversion route will be in place for affected motorists via Goodsmoor Road, Wordsworth Avenue and then onto Grampian Way, before re-joining Stenson Road in the Stenson Fields area. The work, being completed by the city council’s in-house Streetpride team, will involve the replacement of the existing tarmac, and any road lining and traffic loops where necessary.

Part of a letter sent to affected local residents by the local authority reads: “Work is subject to good weather and no urgent work taking priority. During the work, we need to ensure you are kept safe at all times and as a result you may, on occasion, experience some delays in gaining access to your property.

“Please be patient. A supervisor will be on site and will be able to assist you. We understand the work will cause some disruption to you, and we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding and hope that you agree this improvement work will make a difference.”

These works were originally due to start on Monday, September 19, but have been pushed back one day to allow for the Bank Holiday scheduled for the date of the funeral of Her Majesty, the late Queen Elizabeth II.
