Colwick roundabout works to cause Red 44 diversions


Red 44 bus passengers will face further diversions next week as work continues to complete works on Colwick Racecourse Roundabout.

Nottingham City Council plans to carry out the work to finish the new roundabout and all approaches at Colwick Racecourse that will require the closure of Racecourse Road and Red 44 to be diverted in the evenings.

The work will heap further misery on Red 44 passengers who also face delays as gas works take place on Chaworth Road

From next Monday (August 7) until Monday, August 14th, the Red 44 will be forced to operate via an alternative route from 19:30pm until the end of service.

Stops labelled: “Lees Hill Street”, “Meadow Lane”, “Trent Lane”, “Lyndhurst Road”, “Colwick Crossing”, “Racecourse Road” cannot be served.

Red 44 towards City: Upon reaching the roundabout with Colwick Raceourse, buses will continue straight on, using Daleside Road and Manvers Bridge to reach Manvers Street.
