Improvement Works Begin on Albert Street and Victoria Street

18/09/2023

Derby is set for significant improvements aimed at reducing congestion, enhancing sustainability, and promoting active travel. Commencing on Monday 18th September, a comprehensive upgrade will transform Victoria Street and Albert Street, with the project expected to continue until autumn 2024. The works taking place will see the creation of broader sidewalks, improved cycling lanes, additional cycle stands, and cohesive new paving. The streets will also witness the introduction of more green spaces, accompanied by the removal of redundant street fixtures.

Derby City Council’s initiative is designed to bolster accessibility and encourage active transportation choices between St Peter’s Quarter and Cathedral Quarter, two Business Improvement Districts. To alleviate congestion, the existing one-way system from the bus station to the Wardwick will become permanent. Bus waiting areas and streetlights will also receive upgrades to enhance passenger and pedestrian safety and comfort.

The council plans to minimize disruption through evening and weekend resurfacing works, with advance notices provided via on-street signage.

These improvements are part of the Transforming Cities program for Nottingham and Derby, funded with £161 million, and delivered by Eurovia on behalf of Derby City Council. The project aims to boost sustainable transport, support growth, and foster low-carbon journeys. Additionally, the revitalization of Becketwell and the construction of a new performance venue demonstrate Derby’s commitment to urban development and modernization.
