Roadworks will take place in the Broadmarsh area over the summer as part of the Broadmarsh redevelopment programme.
Starting at the beginning of June and lasting approximately four months, major improvement works will take place on Collin Street and Middle Hill to replace a waterproof membrane under both roads, which sit above part of intu Broadmarsh shopping centre below.
Further localised roadworks will also take place to improve the road layout in the vicinity of Wilford Street, Canal Street and Greyfriar Gate. These works will require lane closures at off peak times (9.30am-3.30pm).
Councillor Jon Collins, Leader of the City Council, said: “Doing these works over summer means we have longer hours and, hopefully, drier weather to work in at a time when the roads tend to be quieter, meaning the work can be done over a longer period and with less disruption. We are doing as much as we can during these months, so we can minimise disruption in the darker and wetter autumn months in the run up to Christmas.”
Nottingham City Council apologises for any disruption that occurs while these works are undertaken.
As a result of the works, stops C5-C9 on Collin Street outside intu Broadmarsh will no longer serve customers from Sunday 27 May and be removed on Tuesday 29 May, as works need to take place in the bus lane and pavement. The buses will stop and pickup at other locations nearby which will be clearly identified. Please visit the Robin Hood Network site for more information.
NOTES TO EDITORS
The Broadmarsh area redevelopment programme will see £250m invested in the area, redeveloping intu Broadmarsh into a modern retail and leisure destination, creating a pedestrianised and pedestrian friendly area between intu Broadmarsh and Canal Street and developing a new bus station and car park, along with the creation of a new College Hub and transformation of Nottingham Castle. It is expected to boost the economy by £1.1 billion a decade with 2,900 more jobs, attracting three million more visitors and bringing £25 million extra spend to the city a year.
