Update

Works continue on site at Broadmarsh Car Park and Bus Station, with works expected to complete in Autumn 2021.

Due to other works in the area on the Broadmarsh roadspace transformation, some pedestrian and cycle diversions are in place but all access to the area will continue.

Cyclists to follow Canal Street/Greyfriar Gate/Collin Street diversion or dismount down Carrington Street.

What's happening?

Construction of the new Broadmarsh Car Park building is nearing completion having begun in 2019 with cladding work around the building complete. Contractors remain on site working on the internal elements of the building, such as future retail units, back offices and new facilities for the car park and bus station. Contractors on site are also supporting Nottingham City Council in creating the new public space on Carrington Street, including the entrance to the new Central Library.

How will this affect traffic?

Taking decisions that will in the short-term create disruption for motorists is not easy or popular. But bold, long term action is needed if we want to make sure Nottingham continues to thrive well into the future – a future where our investment in a top-class public transport system will be increasingly important.

Changes to the roads around Broadmarsh began in 2016 and culminated in the Traffic Switch in August 2020, which permanently closed Collin Street and Canal Street to through traffic. Work to complete and improve the new route around the south of the city, the Southern Relief Route, was completed in the summer of 2020.

Access to the Broadmarsh Car Park will be along Canal Street from the London Road roundabout, with more details to come closer to completion of construction.
