I have recently received a letter from Highways England to notify me work to maintain the A38 central barrier between the A52 Markeaton Island and A61 Little Eaton Island.
Highways England explain in their letter that even though they are still safe, the current barriers are reaching the end of their serviceable life so need to be replaced.
The work is planned to start on the 19th September 2016 and finish on 11th February 2017. With the hours of work being 20:00 - 06:00 Monday to Friday in order to minimise inconvenience and disruption. This means the road will be open as usual during the day and weekends, so normal commuting journeys etc should not be disrupted.
