New aerial footage shows how the multi-million-pound Gedling Access Road (GAR) project is progressing.

A new flyover video has been released by Nottinghamshire County Council as part of an update on the construction project

The new road, which is part of a £40 million scheme, is set to open in the autumn of 2021.

It is being introduced to ease traffic issues through Gedling village and serve the new Chase Farm housing development.

In the new video you can see how work has progressed throughout February, with surfacing works and earthworks just some of the highlights to look out for. 

Three new roundabouts are also starting to take shape and can be seen for the first time in the new video. Once complete, these new roundabouts will link the Gedling Access Road with communities and new developments.

Elsewhere on site, kerb stones have been installed at the site of a new four-arm roundabout which will link the GAR with the future Gedling Colliery development. In coming weeks, surfacing works will begin.

A new five-arm roundabout will also be built linking the GAR with Arnold Lane and the future Keepmoat development.

Traffic signal changes as part of GAR works

The council are reminding motorists that temporary three-way signals on Mapperley Plains near to Chartwell Grove will be installed on Monday (March 29) as two-way signals, before being removed from the area on Thursday 1 April. 

From Tuesday, April 6, temporary four-way traffic lights will be installed on Mapperley Plains at the junction with Plains Road, Arnold Lane and Gedling Road.

These signals will allow construction teams to install new crossings at this junction.  These signals will be in place for two weeks and will be followed by lane restrictions on Mapperley Plains for a further week


  1. Nows the time to remove the camera on stoke lane, it was granted approval and placed for a period of 8 months. The camera therefore needs removing!
