Potholes: The most complained about road in Nottinghamshire

The Nottinghamshire road that is the most complained about by people reporting potholes has been revealed.

Figures were revealed in a freedom of information request – Nottingham City Council announced it would be carrying out resurfacing work on the road later this month.

Between April 2017 and March 2018, 38 people complained about the state of a 3.5 mile long stretch of Hucknall Road.

A city council spokesman said: “We are aware that Hucknall Road is in need of attention, which is why resurfacing this major road is one of the top priorities in our annual maintenance schedule.”

The work will take place from the junction of Arnold Road to the junction of Gala Way and will begin on Monday June 18. It is expected to take around ten days to complete and will see the road closed between 9.30am and 3.30pm Monday to Friday.

Local diversions will be in place and access to side streets will be restricted, some resident parking will be unavailable at times.

Councillor Dave Liversidge, Nottingham City Council’s portfolio holder for transport said: “Hucknall Road is a key route into the city and the surface is in need of attention – these works will ensure the road remains safe for all road users.

“The resurfacing will be completed outside of morning and evening peak so we can minimise disruption for commuters and help keep Nottingham moving.”
