Beechdale and Wigman Road Improvements

In Progress

We are upgrading facilities along Beechdale Road, Hollington Road and Wigman Road to create a safer environment for people walking and cycling.

Latest update summer 2024

Works are progressing well and we expect to be done by late summer.

Resurfacing works will take place from 22nd July on Hollington Road in the area shown on the image below. 

Resurfacing will take place 8pm – 5am for approx. ten nights. Cones will be placed out in advance to prevent parking in the areas to be resurfaced – any cars parked on the road may be removed.

Hollington Road Residents Letter


Why are we doing this?

The Covid-19 pandemic has seen more people becoming active. Cycling has fantastic benefits for physical and mental wellbeing, and by replacing those shorter car journeys, we can all help to reduce harmful emissions and help the city achieve its target of being carbon neutral by 2028.

Using the latest design standards, the proposals include replacing the existing cycle lanes as well as improvements to junctions and pedestrian crossing facilities. These improvements will create better connections to the wider cycle network, and provide a safer highway for local residents, businesses and schools.

The key features of the improvements are:

  • Segregated two-way cycle lane on Southern side of Wigman Road to Glaisdale Drive Roundabout
  • Segregated two-way cycle lane on Northern sides of Wigman Road from Glaisdale Drive Roundabout to Chingford/Caincross Junction
  • Segregated two-way cycle lane at the end of Beechdale Road, at the junction with Western Boulevard
  • Segregated two-way cycle lane on the north side of Hollington Road and the first section of Beechdale Road
  • Junction and pedestrian crossing improvements
  • See the detailed technical plans here

Working in partnership, Nottingham City and Derby City Councils secured £161 million from the Department for Transport’s Transforming Cities Fund to invest in local transport infrastructure that will improve sustainable transport, support growth, and encourage more low carbon journeys.

Consultation responses

A consultation on the proposed scheme ran for four weeks in October 2021. People were invited to respond online, and we also ran a drop-in event at Harvey Hadden Sports Village. You can view more information about the consultation responses here.

What happens now?

The delivery contractor chosen from the Council’s specialist highways framework is being engaged to deliver value for money. You can view the current designs for the project here. Construction works began in July 2023.
