The Gedling Access Road is set to come to life in the New Year as the first works are set to start in January 2020.

Main construction work on the Gedling Access Road is scheduled to begin on 6 January 2020 for 18 months and will mark the beginning of sustainable redevelopment in the area for future generations.

The link from the B684 Mapperley plains to the A612 Trent Valley Road is expected to open to traffic in Summer 2021 following the approval of the construction timetable at Nottinghamshire County Council’s Communities and Place Committee today (5 December).

Local residents and businesses are invited to meet the project team and learn more about the construction timetable at two public information events.

The events will take place as follows:

  • Monday 9 December 2019 (2pm – 6pm)

    3rd Woodthorpe Scout Group Hut, NG3 5RJ

  • Wednesday 11 December 2019 (5pm - 8pm)

    Carlton le Willows Academy, NG4 4AA

A number of road closures are planned while construction works are taking place, and road users, residents and business owners will be kept up to date on these.

Councillor John Cottee, Chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council’s Communities and Place Committee, said: “We are delighted to mark the start of a new decade with the Gedling Access Road construction.

“Not only will the Gedling Access Road significantly reduce traffic through Gedling Village, but it will also link communities in the area to wider Nottinghamshire and Nottingham City Centre, while progressing the sustainable redevelopment of the former Gedling Colliery/Chase Farm site.  

“This is just one of our commitments to new highways projects and we will continue to work closely with our partner agencies throughout the construction period to ensure that the project delivers benefits to the local community and the county as a whole.

“We understand that the work will cause inconvenience for the travelling public, residents and businesses, so our priority throughout the construction will be to minimise disruption. Every effort will be made to continue communicating with the public to keep them up to date.”
