Motorists are being warned that Cranbrook Street, Nottingham, will be closed to traffic from midnight on Friday 31 March 2017 until 8pm on Sunday 2 April, to allow developers to operate a crane as part of work to construct student accommodation.

A signed diversion will be in place to route all other traffic from the London Road Island along Fisher Gate, Pennyfoot Street, Manvers Street, Southwell Road and back onto Lower Parliament Street. Advanced warning signs were put up on site on Friday 17 March. During the works, electronic warning signs will be located on Canal Street, Southwell Road and London Road.

Local businesses and private residents will be able to gain pedestrian access at all times during the works. Vehicle access to residents and businesses on Cranbrook Street will be maintained via Lennox Street. In advance of the works, which are being carried out by DMC Global Development at Number 1 Hockley (junction of Cranbrook Street and Hockley), letters have been sent to businesses and residents on Cranbrook Street, Goose Gate, Belward Street, Lennox Street and Brightmoor Street.

To supervise the works and reduce impact on local road users, a Senior Highways Officer will be on site throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday. Information will be available on Nottingham City Council’s social media channels including @MyNottingham, @Transport_Nottm and @NottmTravelwise.
