Pedestrians are being warned not to access a closed road in Gedling after reports people are ignoring warning signs.
Lambley Lane is currently closed to road users and pedestrians until February 2021 to allow for work on the new £40m Gedling Access Road to take place.
Nottinghamshire County Council has now issued a warning following reports people are continuing to access the road on foot, despite the risks to safety.
A spokesman said: “We have received reports of pedestrians accessing Lambley Lane in Gedling.
“This is not permitted and is extremely dangerous due to the heavy earth moving equipment in operation to construct the Gedling Access Road.
“Please do not ignore the signs.”
When built, the new single carriageway stretch will link the A612 Trent Valley Road and Nottingham Road to Mapperley Plains.
The road has being built to help take pressure off a number of local routes.
