A section of the A612 will close next week for five nights so work can be completed on the Burton Road junction with the new £40m Gedling Access Road.

The section between Burton Road and the Victoria Retail Park is due to close from 8pm to 6am each night from Monday, October 26 and will reopen at 6am on Saturday, October 31.

Resurfacing works at the new junction with Burton Road will be taking place during the closure and construction teams will be installing temporary noise attenuation barriers to minimise noise disruption for nearby residents.

Motorists will be able to follow the diversion route via the A46 and A52 or a local route via Shearing Hill, Mapperley Plains, the A614, the A6097 Oxton and Epperstone Bypass and A612.

Residents on Whitworth Drive and Nottingham Road service road can continue to access their properties through the temporary access that has been provided throughout the Burton Road closure.

Councillor John Cottee, Chairman of the Communities and Place Committee, said: “The construction of a new junction with the A612 has been a significant part of the Gedling Access Road works programme and it is pleasing to see these works now entering the final stages.

“Despite the coronavirus pandemic pausing the planned start of works in March, we expect that this phase of the project will be completed ahead of the end of the year as originally intended.

“This closure is essential to the works completing early, and we would like to assure residents and motorists that we are working to keep disruption to a minimum.

“The loudest activities will be completed before 11pm, however some noise may be generated throughout the night. We have contacted residents in the area about this via letter and encourage them to contact us using the details provided with any concerns.”
