Drivers in Gedling will be forced to avoid a local road for months while it is closed as part of works to create a new access route.
Nottinghamshire County Council has said that a full closure of Burton Road will be in place for an estimated period of eight months from its junction with the A612 to the bus turning circle.
The closure is expected to be in force from February.
The road closure is to allow for the construction of a new traffic signal junction arrangement as part of the Gedling Access Road (GAR) works.
A signed diversion will be in place via Stoke Lane for public transport.
A spokesman for Nottingham City Transport said: “Our plan is to use Stoke Lane for the 26 service both ways when the junction at the end of Burton Road closes.”
All other traffic will use the A612 Trent Valley Road and then the Colwick Loop Road back to Shearing Hill during this time.
Traffic lights at the existing junction between Trent Valley Road and Nottingham Road will not be in operation when Burton Road is closed.
The county council document states: “this provides the opportunity to provide free-flowing two-way traffic at this point” and “any temporary traffic lights will be off-peak”.
