What's happening?

Nottingham City Council’s will shortly be undertaking works to repair and resurface sections of Upper Parliament Street. This road has some of the heaviest bus traffic in the city and as a result is in need of maintenance to ensure it remains safe for all road users.

Works will begin at 8pm on Friday 10 August and is expected to complete at 5am Monday 13 August. The works have been scheduled for the school holidays when traffic is lighter, so as to cause less disruption to traffic and shoppers. Our highways teams will work 24 hours to ensure the job is completed, as quickly as possible.

How will this affect traffic?

During the work, Upper Parliament Street will be closed to through traffic so please allow extra time for any journeys. Access to properties and businesses will be maintained via Lower Parliament Street. For full details on the restriction and bus stop closures please refer the plan overleaf.

Footpaths will be unaffected, and the pedestrian crossing at the top of King Street will be in use as normal for the duration of the works.

What about buses?

These works will have a large effect on buses, which will be diverted from their usual routes. The bus companies are aware of these changes and will use alternative stops nearby, please follow NCT, trentbarton or CT4N for more information.
