The final phase of road safety and maintenance works to improve the Elmbridge shopping area on Beckhampton Road will start on April 7th and continue until April 21st.

 Road Safety has been improved with new pedestrian crossings at Southglade and Robin Hood Primary schools, additional double yellow lines added to improve visibility and reduce congestion, bus stop improvements and major road surface improvements on Beckhampton Road.

To complete the works safely it will be necessary to put in place some temporary traffic management arrangements during construction:

  • There will be a road closure on Beckhampton Road for through traffic between the junctions of Belsay Road and Mapletree Close from Tuesday 7th April to 21st April. Access to shops and residential properties will be maintained at all times.
  • Local diversions and temporary traffic management measures, such as two way lights, will be introduced.
  • During the period of works there will be designated areas of ‘No Parking’ and ‘No Stopping Allowed’ where the works are taking place. Restrictions will only be put in place where necessary and to enable works to be carried out safely.
  • Buses which would usually travel along this section of Beckhampton Road will be diverted. The service 89 will divert along the length of Chippenham Road, the 79 and 79A will divert along Eastglade and Parkview Road, the L11 will divert along Eastglade Road, Parkview Road and Ridgeway.

Steve Hunt, Nottingham City Council’s Head of Traffic and Safety said Planning and Transport, said: “The road improvements on Beckhampton Road are important to increase road safety for all users. While these works are underway, all road users are advised to consider alternative routes or to follow the diversion route which will be sign posted throughout the nearby area. We will do all we can to minimise disruption and apologise for any inconvenience the works may cause. The City Council would like to thank local residents and businesses in advance for your patience and cooperation whilst the works are taking place.”
