DCC Planned resurfacing Works

July 2018

We have been notified by Derby City Council of confirmed carriageway resurfacing Works that are due to take place this summer on Farmhouse Road and Arleston Lane roundabout.

The improvement Works will be carried out under a phased road closure and diversion routes will be in place to direct traffic around the Works. The improvements start on Monday 13th August and will last for 2 – 3 weeks.

Derby City Council do not expect the Works to affect access to the Academy during this time.
