Resurfacing Works on Compton Acres Restart this Week
Works will be taking place on Compton Acres in West Bridgford over the next two weeks to complete the resurfacing of the road which was halted by the A52 Clifton Bridge repairs.
The road will be closed between Rugby Road roundabout and Cranberry Close with a diversion along Rugby Road. Access will be maintained for residents.
The scheme, which will be delivered by Via East Midlands and Tarmac, starts on 1 July and will take place weekdays only between 09:30am and 3:30pm, being scheduled to complete on 10 July. The road will be open outside of these hours.
Drivers are advised to find alternative routes in the area as the current high demand at the West Bridgford Recycling Centre is also likely to cause some delays on Rugby Road even though traffic management is in place.
Councillor John Cottee, Chairman of the Communities and Place Committee said:
“These are much needed resurfacing works taking place on Compton Acres and will make a real difference to road users in the area.
“They were initially halted due to the problems on the A52 at Clifton Bridge and have been further delayed due to the impacts of Coronavirus, so they are now much overdue and we’re keen to get them completed.
“We’re doing all that we can to minimise impact, delivering the works off-peak and avoiding weekends, but we are aware that it will have an impact on drivers, particularly with the current high demand for the West Bridgford Recycling Centre and the traffic management which is in place, and we apologise for any disruption caused.
“If drivers can use another route during the works, we advise them to do so, however the short-term disruption will have a long-term benefit of a much-improved road.”
The scheme is another in Nottinghamshire County Council’s significant investment in improving the County’s roads.
