The £40m Gedling Access Road continues to take shape, with the final stages of construction now underway.
The latest flyover video was issued by Nottinghamshire County Council this week and shows how the project is progressing.
A spokesman for Nottinghamshire County Council said: “It’s fair to say that things are really starting to take shape now as we head into the later stages of construction.
“Throughout August, drainage works have continued along the whole route, and verge works, footway construction and final highway surfacing has been done at the Lambley Lane section of the site ahead of the reopening later in September.
“But what do we mean by verge works? Well, put simply, this includes everything from installing street lighting columns to signs and fencing, all of which can now be seen on the flyover.”
Lambley Lane reopening
Lambley Lane will finally reopen to traffic on September 13 after a nine month full closure.
The road will have a new layout once opened, so here’s a few things you need to know before travelling:
I’m travelling from Spring Lane, what do I need to do?
From Spring Lane, you will need to stop at the end of a new downhill section of Lambley Lane which joins with the GAR. You will need to turn right and travel along a short section of the GAR before turning left onto a new section of road close to the site compound which leads to a new mini-roundabout. Upon reaching this roundabout, turn right to head towards Arnold Lane (see image on the left).
And what if I’m travelling from Arnold Lane?
As you travel down Lambley Lane from Arnold Lane, you will come to a new mini-roundabout. You will need to turn left on to the new link road and stop at the junction with the GAR. You will then need to turn right and travel along a short section of the GAR before turning left onto the new spur road which will take you up towards Spring Lane (see image on the right).
Motorists are being warned that traffic management is returning to Mapperley Plains.
Over the next six weeks, there will be a nearside lane closure on Mapperley Plains for traffic heading towards Nottingham city.
This closure will be in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so please allow extra time for your journey.
