Nottingham County Council have released their latest drone footage showing progress on Gedling Access Road.

The new video shows some of the more significant earth work changes to the landscape and further changes at Arnold Lane and Mapperley Top.

Viewers will also be able to see changes to The Pepperpots, which belong to the 3rd Woodthorpe Scout Group.

The ‘Pepperpots’, are named after the structures at the top of the shafts that were built in the 19th century to ventilate the Mapperley Tunnel used by trains underneath the land

A retaining wall has now been built around the structure which will be much needed as the new road will be 14m high.

The Gedling Access Road (GAR) is a new 3.8km single carriageway road which will provide 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.
