Thane Road Junction Improvements

In Progress

Construction began on 23 October to improve congestion along Thane Road heading towards the ring road by increasing junction capacity at the mini-roundabout where Thane Road meets Lenton Lane.

The Government-funded works will widen the road by slightly moving the existing southern footpath to enable introduce an additional traffic lane on Thane Road between Bull Close Road and the mini-roundabout.

This will provide a dedicated right turn approach lane into the mini-roundabout.

As part of the new footpath alignment, a new smooth surface will be provided and lighting columns moved out of the way to create a new shared-use unobstructed facility for pedestrians and cyclists; continuing the programme of infrastructure improvements to accommodate increasing levels of cycling.

About Transforming Cities

In 2020, Nottingham and Derby City Councils were successful in securing unprecedented funding from the Department of Transport’s Transforming Cities fund when they were awarded £161m for a huge programme of transport improvements.

The joint bid was the only one in the country to secure the full amount requested from the DfT. All the schemes meet key TCF objectives: Supporting commuting, employment, development and economic growth

This scheme is part of an ongoing package of enhancements along the Southern Growth Corridor designed to serve existing employment sites and to cater for the travel demand predicted from new housing, employment and leisure developments along the corridor. Later phases include proposals for a new eastbound bus lane from Boots to the A52 / Queens Drive Park and Ride site providing new bus priority measures and enhancing links to existing bus based park and ride sites with further cycle links improvements incorporating new pedestrian connectivity measures to businesses and facilities along Thane Road.
