A new £10m bypass has officially opened in Derby.
The bypass opened on Tuesday
The long-awaited A6 Alvaston Bypass consists of a 1.4-mile (2.3-kilometre) dual carriageway between the A6 Thurlston roundabout and the A5111 Raynesway.
It is designed to divert more than 80% of traffic away from the centre of Alvaston.
It is hoped the new road will have a major impact on reducing accidents.
But although the new road has been widely welcomed by local residents, not everyone thinks it is an improvement.
Emma Meakin, who lives next to the new road, said it would make congestion worse.
She said: "I think it's going to cause a lot of problems for other people in the area."
