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.

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?

Work on phase one of the scheme will begin in the autumn between Valley Road and Arnold Road. Works are expected to last for six months, during which time traffic lane widths will need to be reduced, and the bus lane will be closed in parts.

Residents and businesses close to affected areas will be contacted by letter with specific details of how and when their area will be impacted.

This will usually include ‘no stopping’ (no parking) restrictions on the road at all times. Working hours will be between 7.30am and 4.30pm and access to driveways maintained at all times.

The first area for works to take place will be between Heathfield Road and Tring Vale, with work commencing on 20 September for six weeks.
