Works begin this weekend to create a new entrance to the city from the south in the Broadmarsh area, with major changes taking place on the surrounding roads.
Video of the route shows the road closure area, then loops back to where it starts to follow the Southern Relief Route – from West Bridgford you’ll need to reverse the Southern Relief Route and turn left down Queen’s Road ( where the station car park is ) from London Road and then continue if you need to access the city from that side.
You’ll still be able to continue North at BBC roundabout and access the city via Hollowstone or continue towards Victoria Centre.
From Sunday 9 August the following roads will be affected:
- Collin Street will be closed to all traffic
- Canal Street, between Middle Hill and Greyfriar Gate, will become a two-way restricted area for buses and wheelchair accessible taxis
- The Greyfriar Gate junction has been modified to accommodate both north and southbound traffic, linking Maid Marian Way with Wilford Street, Canal Street and Castle Boulevard
- Middle Hill will become two-way from Canal Street to enable access into Lace Market
Drivers who usually use Collin Street and Canal Street will need to use the Southern Relief Route from Sunday 9 August once changes are in effect.
