Further district heating improvement works are taking place on Huntingdon Street

Nottingham City Council will soon be carrying out the second phase of planned works on St Ann’s Street to Union Road and crossing Huntingdon Street.

These works will support improvement and maintenance of the city’s District Heating scheme.

The main works on Huntingdon Street will start from Friday 25 March for a period of three weeks, with the works being undertaken during normal daytime working hours. The works are expected to have a significant impact on traffic flows and will involve traffic diversions for northbound traffic on Huntingdon Street. Temporary arrangements will be:

  • Northbound traffic on Huntingdon Street will be diverted via Glasshouse Street
  • Southbound traffic will continue to use Huntingdon Street so no diversion will be necessary
  • Turning restrictions and changes in priority will apply on some of the side roads in the immediate vicinity of the works
  • Access to nearby properties and local shops will be maintained.

Further works on St Ann’s Street and Union Road will continue until early August but these will not affect the traffic flow on Huntingdon Street.

Anyone who needs more information about the works or to discuss special access requirements can call 0115 915 2000.

Councillor Alan Clark, Nottingham City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Energy and Sustainability, said: “These works are part of our ongoing maintenance works for the District Heating Network to ensure that the system keeps operating efficiently.  Works include upgrades to existing pipework and additional infrastructure to allow for further connections to the system in the future.

“Nottingham has the largest district heating network in the UK and it is an important part in the city’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions. We would like to thank people for their continued patience while these necessary works take place.”
