Derby Junctions

The Markeaton Island is one of the junctions which is due to become grade separated as part of the A38 Derby Junctions scheme. This scheme is due to begin in 2020. Smaller scale work to install permanent traffic signals and widen parts of the roundabout took place during 2014.

A public consultation ran in February and March 2015 regarding the Derby Junctions scheme. The preferred option at the Markeaton Roundabout is a new grade-separated roundabout, where the A38 is lowered into a cutting below the existing roundabout.
