Derby to open mobility hub

Design for the Nottingham Road mobility hub


A mobility hub is to be installed at a shopping precinct in Derby this summer, giving residents better sustainable transport options and reduced congestion and air pollution.

The Nottingham Road mobility hub will provide the local community with a range of sustainable and travel methods, making it easier for local residents to access the precinct as well as access additional transport choices.

Alongside the improved travel options, there will be new seating areas and planters.

Cllr Carmel Swan, climate change, transport and sustainability, said: “I’m delighted that the latest mobility hub will be in place this summer, following the success of our first hub in the Six Streets area of Darley.

“Many of our improvement works so far have focussed on the city centre, but Derby is much more than this and it’s important that other areas of the city benefit from improved transport choices.

“This mobility hub will be a welcome addition to our ever-growing network of active and sustainable travel options and will play a key role in our combined efforts to combat climate change through reduced pollution and congestion in Derby.”

Installation of the mobility hub will not reduce the number of conventional vehicle parking spaces but will give residents more options.

The work is due to start in Summer 2024 with the work taking just a few weeks to complete.

The mobility hub will be funded by the Department for Transport's Future Transport Zones Fund, which was awarded to Derby City Council to trial new and exciting developments in transport.

Derby City Council has joined forces with Enterprise Car Club to bring an accessible public car club to the city. The car club will enable citizens to get around using electric and low emission vehicles. Once a member, users will be able to hire car club vehicles from six on-street locations.

The installation of the hub will allow the footway to be improved, as well as the addition of:

  • An Enterprise car club location
  • Electric vehicle (EV) charging
  • An accessible seating area with bike storage and a public bike pump
  • Interactive screen with live travel updates.
