Finishing touches are being applied to Station Street and Trent Street, meaning Trent Street will be closed on Sunday 4 September with some temporary traffic management arrangements on Sunday 11 September on Station Street to ensure parking and waiting on these roads can be properly managed in the future.
Road markings on these streets need to be removed and new lining laid for the new arrangements on Trent Street and Station Street as part of the recent redevelopment.
The existing linings, including Bus Lane markings, need to be removed and new lining laid down. For this to be done safely and with minimum inconvenience to traffic and pedestrians, this requires the complete closure of Trent Street on Sunday 4 September and all parking to be suspended on Station Street on Sunday 11 September.
Taxis will be able to pick up passengers from Station Street on Sunday 4 September as per the previous arrangement while works were taking place, and the road closure on Station Street at its junction with London Road will be temporarily removed to allow access to the rank on Station Street.
After the works have been completed, the road closure at London Road/Station Street will be reinstated and the taxi ranks moved back onto Trent Street.
On Sunday 11 September, similar works will be carried out on Station Street; although there will not be a road closure for these works, there will be moving temporary traffic management arrangements in place but access for taxis ranking on Trent Street will not be affected.
Councillor Nick McDonald, Portfolio Holder for Business, Growth and Transport, said, “As we near completion of a revamped and much improved Station Street, these works are an essential part of the new area to ensure Station Street is the modern, safe and welcoming area we want it to be for new and returning visitors to Nottingham.
“These final pieces of work should not take long and will bring together the final bits of work to make Station Street a welcoming gateway to the city, in preparation for the developments around the Broadmarsh area and other exciting developments across the city.”
While these works have been scheduled for Sundays to minimise disruption, Nottingham City Council apologises for any inconvenience these works may cause. Any fans travelling by train to the Aston Villa vs Nottingham Forest match on Sunday 11 September should allow additional time to get to Nottingham Station, drop passengers off at the Queens Road drop off point or use the tram to reach the station.
