The section of Carrington Street between Canal Street and Collin Street will close on Wednesday 24 May for approximately two weeks as works take place by Western Power to remove and relocate an electrical substation.
The removal of the substation requires a deep excavation in the pavement and roadspace is needed to safely and completely remove the electrical substation and associated cabling.
The closure of Carrington Street means the subway entrance to intu Broadmarsh and the side entrance to the Broadmarsh Bus Station will be closed to ensure public safety during the works. Entrance to the bus station will remain through intu Broadmarsh and via Tanner’s Walk – the tunnel near the crossing on Canal Street by the tram viaduct. Pedestrians will still be able to walk along Carrington Street, as the pavement on the opposite side from the bus station will remain open.
Broadmarsh car park and bus station will remain open during these works and no disruption is expected to these services. Taxis will not be able to rank on Carrington Street during this time but taxis can be caught from Station Street, where there is a well-stocked rank of taxis, or hailed if you see one with its light on in the street. Buses heading to Hockley that normally drive through Carrington Street will make a minor diversion, turning left on to Canal Street, right on to Greyfriar Gate and re-joining their route on Collin Street. The heritage bike racks in the area will be removed and placed into storage to be replaced once the work is done.
Western Power and Nottingham City Council apologise for any inconvenience caused during these works.
