What's happening?

Nottingham City Council has secured funding to improve the Hucknall Road corridor for people walking, cycling and using the bus.

Phase one of the scheme will include a 24-hour widened bus and cycle lane heading into the city, with worn areas resurfaced and markings renewed. There will be a stepped cycle lane heading out of the city, requiring some changes near the bus stop (SH48, near City Hospital gate 3) which will be moved slightly.

Hucknall Road improvements

Why are we doing this?

Benefits of the project include:

  • Footways resurfaced and widened footways in many places
  • Tree planting
  • Dedicated stepped cycle lane to enable safer cycling
  • Traffic moved further from residential properties
  • Improved reliability of bus services
  • New resident parking bays (subject to consultation)

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

How will I be affected?

Works on phase one of the scheme began in Autumn 2021 between Valley Road and Arnold Road and are due to finish early in the new year.

The traffic signals refurbishment is due to be completed on 22 December, and the temporary traffic lights and pedestrian lights will be removed.

The remaining work requires minimal traffic management measures, but the bus lane will not operate as such until the whole of the works are finished.

From 4 January 2022 we plan to commence work on the southernmost inbound section of Hucknall Road, just after the roundabout. Traffic will be affected, and the suspended bus lane used to allow safe working space, and to provide room for right turners into the city hospital.
