 Road in Arnold to close during day for repair works

A road in Arnold is to close during the day for almost two weeks so it can be repaired.

A large section of Cross Street will be cut off to traffic between 8am and 5pm on weekdays between Monday, October 19 and Friday, October 30.

A number of side roads will also be closed from their junction with Cross Street for 20 metres. These are Furlong Street, Stanhope Road, James Street and Goodwood Avenue. Residents on these roads will be able to access Cross Street during working hours with the assistance of traffic marshals.

The repair work was due to be carried out in March but was delayed due to lockdown.

Nottinghamshire County Council is carrying out the repairs following pressure from local councillor Michael Payne.

Councillor Payne said:”Before Covid-19 lockdown in March I secured repair works for a large section of Cross Street in Arnold, these works were due to be carried out just as Covid-19 lockdown came into force, which delayed the works significantly. I’m pleased the agreed works I argued for are now scheduled to go ahead in mid-October.

“Cross Street will be repaired between its junction with High Street and its junction with Galway Road. This stretch of road has long been in need of repair works and I’m pleased to have secured these improvements as the local County Councillor for Arnold North.”

The area impacted on Cross Street

He added: “I will continue to argue for further road repairs and improvements right across the communities I represent in Arnold, Redhill, Ernehale, Warren Hill, Bestwood Lodge Drive/Deer Park Drive, Mapperley Plains, Killisick & Woodthorpe.”

A council spokesman said: “Highways officers politely ask you to be patient and understanding if there is machinery situated or work being carried out at the junction of your residential street with Cross Street and you have to wait 5 to 10 minutes to access Cross Street or your road. The operatives carrying out the works will do their best to mitigate inconvenience but ask for your patience and understanding too.”
