Nottinghamshire County Council - Proud of our past, ambitious for our future

Transport improvements

Listed below are schemes that are currently being proposed or delivered.

20mph speed limits outside schools

The County Council continues to invest in providing a safe and efficient road network with vehicles travelling at appropriate speeds that reflect the function of the road and its environment.  This is undertaken through education, engineering and enforcement, funded through both capital and revenue funding sources; and setting the most appropriate local speed limit plays a key role in the safe and efficient movement of goods and people.

20mph limits and zones are now available for highway authorities to introduce on residential and other streets where there are (or could be) significant numbers of journeys on foot, and/or where pedal cycles are an important consideration, and this outweighs the disadvantage of longer journey times for motorised traffic.

Integrating passenger transport across Nottinghamshire

People currently use transport services in Nottinghamshire for a variety of reasons. The County Council financially supports some local bus services, home to school transport, special education needs transport and adult social care transport. We need to change some of these services to make better use of vehicles and reduce costs. That's why we are working with partners and the public to ensure that in the future commercial, voluntary, community and health transport services all continue to meet local needs in an affordable way.

Following an earlier consultation, we're holding roadshows across the county to present new transport proposals to keep you informed of our plans.

Hucknall town centre improvement scheme

This scheme involves pedestrianising the High Street between the South Street/Baker Street junction and the Watnall Road junction. A new inner relief road, running parallel with the High Street, will cater for the majority of the displaced traffic and will also accommodate additional local traffic generated by new housing developments. A new two-way 'bus only' link will also be constructed to connect the proposed inner relief road with the remaining portion of the High Street that carries traffic. The existing double roundabout at the junction of Linby Road, Station Road and Ashgate Road will be replaced with a new traffic signal controlled junction.

Worksop Town Centre consultation

Bridge Street and parts of Bridge Place and Castle Street Worksop currently operate as a pedestrianised zone. General traffic is restricted from entering the street at any time but at certain times exemptions exist for loading vehicles, blue badge and special access permit holders.

Unfortunately, a high number of cars are parking legally and illegally within the pedestrianised zone causing inconvenience for shoppers and local businesses. Representations have been made to Bassetlaw District Council and Nottinghamshire County Council by local people and traders concerned about the situation.

West Bridgford advisory 20mph zone

The West Bridgford Local Area Forum Traffic and Transport Sub-group approached the County Council to ask us to change the speed limits on most of West Bridgford’s residential streets to 20mph. It is considered that such a scheme could help improve the perception of road safety and thereby increase the numbers of people walking and cycling.

Following surveys with local residents, we have agreed to fund a trial advisory 20mph zone in one part of West Bridgford.
