Summer of lane closures ahead as Broadmarsh road improvements kick off

Lane closures are on the way over the summer in Nottingham city centre as roadworks start as part of the Broadmarsh redevelopment programme.

Starting at the beginning of June and lasting around four months, major works will take place on Collin Street and Middle Hill to replace a waterproof membrane under both roads, which sit above part of intu Broadmarsh shopping centre below.

Further localised roadworks will also take place to improve the road layout in the vicinity of Wilford Street, Canal Street and Greyfriar Gate. These works will require lane closures at off peak times (9.30am-3.30pm).

Councillor Jon Collins, leader of the City Council, said: “Doing these works over summer means we have longer hours and, hopefully, drier weather to work in at a time when the roads tend to be quieter, meaning the work can be done over a longer period and with less disruption. We are doing as much as we can during these months, so we can minimise disruption in the darker and wetter autumn months in the run up to Christmas.”

Nottingham City Council says it apologises for any disruption that occurs while these works are undertaken.
