Work to begin this week on creating new £120k viewing platforms at Gedling Country Park

Work will begin this week on creating two new platforms to give walkers stunning aerial views of Gedling Country Park.

The platforms are planned as part of a £120,000 investment. Work on an extension to the car park at the attraction is also currently underway.

The platforms will be installed to the north and south of the solar panel farm at the park and will both feature wheelchair and pushchair accessible ramps and interpretation panels with information about the views beyond the platforms .

The funding for the work was awarded by the Rural Payments Agency, which provides grants for projects helping to promote growth, jobs and tourism in rural areas.

Work on the viewing platforms will begin on Wednesday (January 15).

All paths during the work will remain open but visitors are reminded to take care as construction takes place.

The platforms are expected to be completed by the end of March 2020.
