Video: Aerial drone footage shows Gedling Access Road progress


Drone footage filmed from above shows how the Gedling Access Road is taking shape

The video, created by Nottinghamshire County Council, starts at Burton Road, where works are now underway to construct a new traffic signalled junction with the A612.

Construction on the new 3.8km single carriageway road, which will provide a link between the B684 Mapperley Plains and the A612 Trent Valley Road, began in January 2020.

The video shows the progress made on the project in April and May.

A number of road closures will be in place while construction work is taking place on the £40m project.

Burton Road was closed to traffic several weeks ago and Lambley Lane in Gedling is now also out of bounds to motorists.

A daytime closure on Lambley Lane is now in place until February 2021. Earthworks are underway on site close to Lambley Lane, meaning the road must now be closed to allow for contractors to move the earth between different areas of the construction site.

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire County Council said: “The closure will be in place between 7am and 6pm on weekdays and every effort has been made to ensure that residents and businesses are able to access their properties during these times. Businesses along Lambley Lane will remain open to customers, and if you are travelling in the area, a diversion via Mapperley Top is in place.”
