Please allow extra time for your journey on Saturday!

7 February 2020

Nottingham Forest and Leeds United supporters heading to Saturday's game at The City Ground should be aware of a closure to the A52 which may add some extra time to their journeys.

Fans travelling to the game are being urged to allow extra time for their journeys as part of the Clifton Bridge is set to remain closed over the weekend.

Specialist teams have been working around the clock carrying out investigations into damage that has been discovered underneath the road.

During planned maintenance works, it was discovered that water damage had corroded some of the steel works underneath the road.

Highways England has closed the eastbound carriageway, which carries traffic out of the city centre, while this damage is thoroughly investigated and these investigations will be continuing across the weekend.

Head of service delivery at Highways England, Adrian Oulds, said: “Whilst we know that the structure itself remains safe we need to fully assess the extent of the water corrosion before opening this busy road up to traffic. We are striving to get the bridge partially open early next week.

"We appreciate road closures are frustrating for people but the safety of the public and road users is always the priority for Highways England.

“We are grateful to drivers for their patience and would urge them to allow extra time for journeys and avoid the area if possible.”
