The latest phase of road works to improve the pedestrian environment around Sneinton Market will begin on March 30th, 2015. The works will take place for seven evenings, excluding Good Friday and Easter Monday.
The current scheme forms part of the programme of improvements to support economic growth in the Creative Quarter, complement the redevelopment the Sneinton Wholesale Market avenues and establish the area as a focal point for Nottingham’s emerging creative sector. The Creative Quarter programme is funded by Nottingham City Council and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
The latest works will complete the resurfacing of the carriageways through the junctions and this will be carried out in phases requiring, at times the following changes to traffic flows:
• The closure of Sneinton Road and Bath Street junction with localised diversions and two-way lights on Carlton Road.
• The closure of the Manvers Street junction onto Southwell Road with traffic diverted along Eyre Street onto Sneinton Road.
All phases of work will take place between 7pm and midnight and when necessary the diversions will be put in place and signed.
The final stage of work will see the upgraded traffic signals brought into operation, with completion scheduled for mid-April.
Councillor Jane Urquhart, Portfolio Holder for Transport and Planning at Nottingham City Council, said: On behalf of the Council I would like to thank local residents and businesses for their patience and cooperation whilst the works are taking place around Sneinton Market. I appreciate that this will cause disturbance in the evenings but operationally this is the best time to carry out the works. The results will certainly be worth it, making the area better for pedestrians and road users and creating a thriving centre for local people and businesses alike.”
