New drone footage reveals the progress of the Gedling Access Road made during June ahead of its scheduled opening this autumn.
Nottinghamshire County Council says the £40 million road features three new roundabouts and 3.8km of asphalt.
Work originally began on the road in January 2020.
The new footage, released by Nottinghamshire County Council, shows how the road is shaping up as construction continues on the huge project.
The GAR is being created to ease pressure on Arnold Lane – the A6211– between Mapperley Plains and Colwick Loop Road. It is one of the most heavily used roads in the region, carrying over 15,000 vehicles a day.
Upon completion of the GAR, the new road will become the A6211, and the existing route will be declassified, save for Colwick Loop Road which will be reclassified as a ‘B’ class road.
The GAR is also intended to reduce the speed limit on Arnold Lane and introduce a 7.5t Environmental Weight Limit (EWL) on Burton Road, Shearing Hill and Arnold Lane, by making a Traffic Regulation Order.
