Derby is the 18th largest settlement in the UK with a population of 233,700. Derby became a city in 1977 so signs can still be seen in the city which have 'city centre' patched over 'town centre'. It is a Primary Destination in the East Midlands and is on the boundary between zones 5 and 6 since the A6 runs through the city.

Derby is home to important British industry such as Bombardier and Rolls-Royce.

London Road Diversion

Derby Station Approach Link Road

Stage 1 from The Cock Pitt into Pride Park was opened on 9 January 1997 by Nigel Rudd, Pride chairman. It included a 4 span viaduct over the railway north of the station. B6000 was re-routed to join the road. It linked to an adjacent section of Pride Parkway (from Derwent Parade and A52 Wyvern link) which had been officially opened on 6 January 1997. Cost was £9 million. It was initially unclassified but later became part of the diverted A6.

Derby Southern Bypass

The 14.9 mile A50 dual carriageway from A516 at Hilton to M1 J24 Kegworth Interchange was opened on 5 September 1997. This was a day later than the official opening by Baroness Hayman, Roads Minister, to allow fencing to be tightened. Also included the 1 mile A6 spur from Aston Interchange to Thulston Roundabout. Contractor was Tarmac Civil Engineering, cost £109.5 million.
