Works begin next week on Maid Marian Way roundabout revamp

Following preparation works, roadworks that are set to transform the large roundabout on Maid Marian Way will begin on Tuesday 7 May.   

Nottingham City Council has secured external funding for this scheme that will improve pedestrian and cycling connectivity within the city centre by changing the road layout to make it safer for everyone, as well as providing additional green space on an important gateway into the city.  

This project is being delivered using grant funding secured from Central Government through the Future High Street Fund programme. 

The Council does anticipate some disruption to traffic throughout this project and apologises for this inconvenience.  

For the first phase of works from 7 May the below traffic management arrangements will be in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week:  

  • The inner traffic lane of roundabout will be coned off  
  • The offside approach lanes will be coned off 
  • Maid Marian Way southbound offside lane will be coned off    
  • There are no changes to bus routes or bus stopping arrangements in this phase 
  • The pedestrian crossing points at the roundabout will be kept operational 
  • The pedestrian crossing point at Mount Street (west side) will be impacted, with pedestrians needing to use alternative crossings 
  • A construction compound will be set up on Wellington Circus. To maintain vehicle access around North Circus Street, Wellington Circus and East Circus Street, some parking bays will be temporarily suspended 

The roundabout will remain in use for traffic until late summer when it will be closed to allow it to be completely removed and the new junction built. Diversion information and updates will be shared ahead of time to make travel in the area as easy as possible during the works. 

The Council encourages everyone to sign up for their Transport Nottingham email, which keeps more than 30,000 subscribers updated on the latest disruption and travel information.    

Nottingham City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Highways, Transport and Planning, Councillor Angela Kandola, said: 

“Thank you for bearing with us during this huge project – our team will be doing all they can to ensure the works are carried out as quickly and efficiently as possible, while putting the safety of residents, commuters and workers first.”
