Road in Gedling to close for eight months due to GAR construction works

Burton Road in Gedling

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.

Burton Road will be closed for around eight months

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”.

A map showing the actual closed area would be good. Access still needed along Burton Road to properties.

I urge everyone who is either on Linden Grove, Beaumaris Estate or Coronation Walk to contact the representative (below) at the council who is in charge of this detour which would cost any local resident wishing to travel North towards Burton Joyce (and back) a fortune in extra fuel and time.

I don’t think it would cost a fortune but it is annoying. We’ll just make the best of it for a few months.

Sheriff Fatman Jan 16, 2020 - 5:50 am

They could at least open Stoke Lane to all traffic.

Welcome to GAR , enjoy
