Approaching the junction on the Eastbound A52

The Spondon Interchange is a large, modified trumpet type junction. Land constraints mean many of the junction's slip roads are very tight and therefore they have low advisory speed limits.

It was constructed during the early 1980s as part of work to fill the gap in the A52 left between the already built Borrowash Bypass and Pentagon Island.

The A5111 was in place here before the junction was built, and was modified to accommodate the new junction. Before it was built, the A5111 continued to the small roundabout junction to the North which was, at the time, a junction with the A52. From there traffic would have had to travel through Chaddesden to the Pentagon Island for Derby, or along a short stretch of what is now the A6005 before picking up the Borrowash Bypass (at what is now the Spondon Roundabout) for Nottingham.
