A Gedling councillor has won the battle to use temporary bus stops during a new round of roadworks in the village.
Cllr Jenny Hollingsworth, who represents Gedling Ward, made an appeal to Nottinghamshire County Council for the stops to be created after it was discovered there would be no temporary stops in operation along the diverted route of the 44 bus during the planned five-day road closure in the centre of Gedling village.
Work begins to resurface the junction of Westdale Lane and Main Road on Sunday (August 19). This section of road will be closed during the works, causing many bus services stopping in the village to be diverted.
The new temporary stops for the 44 service will now be located opposite Carnarvon Road on Main Road, opposite Station Avenue on Shearing Hill and also at the bottom of Shearing Hill.
Cllr Hollingsworth said: “This is good news for local bus users and I am grateful for the assistance given by the Transport Facilities Team in resolving this issue.”
Work on the junction of Westdale Lane and Main Road in Gedling is being carried out by contractor Tarmac and will last for around five days.
Work is expected to be completed on Thursday, August 23 at 3pm.
During this period a number of bus services will diverted. You can find out more details HERE
