Bus services from Gedling borough using Upper Parliament Street will face disruption later this month as the road closes over a weekend for repairs.

Services from the borough will stop on surrounding streets while it is closed for vital maintenance work from 8pm on Friday, August 10 until 5am on Monday, August 13.

Nottingham City Council say the works have been scheduled for the school holidays when traffic is lighter, to cause less disruption to traffic and shoppers.

The council’s highways teams will work 24 hours to ensure the job is completed as quickly as possible.

Councillor Dave Liversidge, Nottingham City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Transport said: “The sheer number of buses that operate on Upper Parliament has meant that the surface is in need of repair. We will be reinforcing the bus stop bays with an extra durable material which will be able to better withstand the weight of the buses.

“Our teams will be working overnight and throughout the weekend to get the job done as quickly as possible, but we know that this will be disruptive and apologise for any inconvenience that these works cause.

“These works will have a significant effect on taxis and bus services using this route, with buses diverted to alternative stops on the surrounding streets and no pick-up or drop-off points for taxi passengers within the works area. Bus passengers should follow NCT, trentbarton or CT4N for specific stop information.”

Access to properties and businesses will be maintained via Lower Parliament Street. Pavements will be unaffected, and the pedestrian crossing at the top of King Street will be in use as normal for the duration of the works.
