Disruption expected on part of the A52 in Nottingham as the next phase of the tram works start.
Nottingham City Council are advising drivers to plan their journeys in advance over the next two weeks cus part of the A52 is going to be closed so the tram network can be extended.
From today (Sunday 20 October) delays are expected here:
Nottingham City Council's Portfolio Holder for Planning and Transport, Councillor Jane Urquhart, said:
'There’s a lot of work going on around the city and I understand the frustration this can cause, we apologise in advance for any inconvenience members of the public may experience. The work at Bardills roundabout has been planned to coincide with the school half term holiday when traffic is reduced and I would like to reassure residents we are working with partners to keep disruption to a minimum.
'All the works are part of a £750 million investment to build a better Nottingham and deliver a world-class integrated transport system for the city. The City Council and its partners are working hard to co-ordinate the construction and works activities on these major transport projects to minimise disruption and ensure long term gains.
Nottingham City Council have told Capital that diversions will be clearly signposted and the roads will be closely monitored to keep traffic flowing as much as possible. Officials say some disruption is inevitable so are advising drivers to plan their journeys in advance.
