Roads will close and diversions will be put into place when resurfacing works begin on Surgeys Lane in Arnold on Monday (10).

Works are expected to last until Friday, January 21.

The road will be closed between 7.30am and 5pm on weekdays during the fortnight while it is resurfaced.

Nottingham City Transport has said that their 58 bus service will be diverted during this time.

A spokesman said: “From 7:30am until 17:00pm on each day – except Sunday, January 16 – Lime 58 will divert via Coppice Road and Beechwood Road in both directions. Where possible, these journeys will show ’58X'”

Residents have been calling for the resurfacing of the road in Arnold for the past few years.

In response, local councillor Michael Payne created and gathered signatures on a petition which was handed to Nottinghamshire County Council caling for works to take place.

He said: “I’m delighted to have secured full resurfacing of Surgeys Lane.

“I’ve been campaigning to have Surgeys Lane resurfaced for a number of years and last February I organised a petition of local residents, which I presented to Nottinghamshire County Council calling for a full resurface of the road.

“The initial response from the County Council to our petition was disappointing but I pursued the issue with highways officers and persuaded them to agree to our request for a full resurfacing of the road and for it to be carried out this financial year.

I’m pleased work is now about to start on this much-needed and long-overdue scheme.

He added: “As ever, I will continue to campaign for further road and pavement improvements for all the communities I represent and am actively pursuing improvement works elsewhere in our community, including but not exclusive to the junction at Coppice Road, Howbeck Road and Rolleston Drive.”
