Delays expected as final stage of work to widen Daleside Road takes place


Motorists can expect delays next week as the final stage of improvement works on Daleside Road take place.

Work will begin next week to resurface the newly-widened carriageway from Colwick Racecourse roundabout to Colwick village.

The road was recently widened to accommodate a bus lane in both directions to speed up journey times east of the city and improvements have been made for pedestrians and cyclists.

Work began last April to create an Eco Expressway into Nottingham.

The route is one of the UK’s first to feature a priority lane for electric cars as well as buses and cyclists.

  1. not widening the road – there will be no extra lanes for cars – I foresee massive jams….. can’t wait for the 800+ houses to be built on the outskirts of Netherfield….. imagine another 1000+ cars on that single land into Nottingham. Going to be SO much fun!!!!
