Following the completion of the new access road, a full closure of Arnold Lane between its junction with Mapperley Plains and Linsdale Gardens was put in place. This is to enable construction works to be undertaken that will see Arnold Lane connected onto Colliery Way at the five-arm roundabout.
The closure is expected to remain in place until August 2022.
The council this week provided an update on how works to connect the two roads are progressing.
They say earthworks are progressing in this area and that two new curved sections of road to link the new five arm roundabout on Colliery Way to Arnold Lane have now been formed.
Works are also progressing well on the new maintenance access to the golf club. Works on new drainage for these sections of new road are underway, along with the installation of the ductwork for the new streetlighting in this area. Last week saw kerb laying to one side of the roundabout begin, in readiness for highway surfacing, which commenced on Thursday (12)
Alongside the link road earthworks have continued to complete the profile of the new embankment forming the habitat enhancement area between Colliery Way and Arnold Lane and topsoil is being placed to ready this area for seeding and future planting.
The construction team said they wanted to thank residents for their patience while the work has been taking place.
A spokesman said: “These works have been complex due to the limited working room available and as these works continue, our construction teams would like to thank you for your patience whilst they work in the area.”
