More articles

A number of night-time road closures on Mapperley Plains will be put in place later this month to allow for construction works on the Gedling Access Road.

A section of Mapperley Plains will be closed between the Plains Road/Arnold Lane/Gedling Road junction and Chartwell Grove.

The section of road will close from 8pm until 5am from Tuesday, January 25 for seven nights.

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire County Council said: “This is necessary to safely complete the final surfacing and road markings for the new junction with the Gedling Access Road.

“While the junction of Chartwell Grove and Mapperley Plains will be open for resident access, at certain times, the surfacing work will need to extend past the junction, and we have plans for traffic marshals to ensure safe passage of vehicles.”

Gary Wood, head of highways and transport at Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “These works mark an important phase of the construction of the Gedling Access Road. 

“In previous months construction teams have been working on widening the existing carriageway at Mapperley Plains and have constructed the new junction, and the works they will be doing during the night closure will tie all of this together. 

“Closing the road means that we can ensure the safety of the public and our construction teams while they are carrying out these works.

“We know that any kind of closure can cause disruption, and so we have chosen to undertake these works overnight to minimise disruption for residents and motorists.

“Diversion routes for cars, buses and HGVs are in place, and details of these can be found on our website.

“I cannot mention the Gedling Access Road without recognising the ongoing support from local residents and motorists, and I would like to thank them for their continued patience whilst we work in the area.”

The Gedling Access Road is expected to open in Spring 2022.

The new £48m bypass will be called Colliery Way once it officially opens this year.
