Why this is happening

The Transforming Cities Fund £161m package of schemes will strengthen connections
between major employment sites, upgrade public transport, and improve options for
people on foot or bike across Nottingham, including investment into your local area along
and around Carlton Road.

You may have already used the new crossing facility installed at the bottom of Porchester Road. We are now looking to provide enhanced cycle and crossing facilities along Carlton Road and connect to this crossing.

We have just over £1,000,000 which, whilst a lot of funding, is not sufficient to deliver the full corridor. This means some of the works will start this year, and then we will then seek further funding to undertake the next phases.

What is happening

The first phase of works is shown in green. This will incorporate junction and crossing
improvements for pedestrians and cyclists as well as cycle lanes through a design that will
provide a ‘stepped cycle track’. This design allows cyclists to be higher than the carriageway,
but lower than the footway. This provides space for all users to safely move through the

We have chosen this as the first phase as it can connect with existing bus lane provision or quiet route along Windmill Lane and enhances the existing cycle route on Carlton Road.
