A new flyover film captured by drone has been created to give residents a glimpse of progress on the new £40m Gedling Access Road (GAR).
The latest video, which has been shared by Nottinghamshire County Council, shows work taking place to create the large embankment at Mapperley Plains, where you can see just how much earth has been excavated to help elevate the structure.
Although we are in the midst of a second national lockdown, work has been able to continue after the Government made it clear that construction work wouldn’t be suspended as before.
Once completed the Gedling Access Road will be a new 3.8km single carriageway road which providing a link between the B684 Mapperley Plains and the A612 Trent Valley Road / Nottingham Road.
The road is expected to open to traffic in the autumn of 2021.
Burton Road closure extended
Burton Road has been closed since May of this year while a new traffic signal controlled junction for the GAR with the A612 is constructed.
Works on-site are now nearing completion and the road closure will remain in place until December.
A spokesman said: “We would like to thanks residents and motorists for their continued patience.”
