‘Our improvements have included widening all three approaches to the roundabout to create extra lanes in order to reduce congestion and queuing.

‘New traffic lights and a traffic-light-controlled pedestrian crossing have been installed to improve safety, and a dedicated bus lane has been added on the roundabout to improve the flow of public transport.

‘Our work has also extended to Nottinghamshire County Council’s maintenance depot, with a new traffic light-controlled system at the exit to allow safer movement of their vehicles, plus a new maintenance lay-by to improve safety for their maintenance workers.’
