West Bridgford’s largest car park to close for five days 10 June

Bridgford Road Car Park in West Bridgford will be closed for five days from tomorrow Monday June 10 to Friday June 14 for essential resurfacing and maintenance work.

Nearby car parks including Nursery Car Park, Albert Road NG2 5GS and Gordon Road Car Park, Gordon Road NG2 5LL in the town will remain open as usual.

Temporary parking will also be available at the adjacent Bridge Field, nearby on Bridgford Road during the works from 7am to 7pm weather permitting. A plastic surface has recently been installed under the entrance lanes to the Bridge Field area to minimise mud and damage.

Bridge Field parking rates will be the same as all other local car parks and payable by the RingGo app and telephone service only.

The works will see a long-term improvement of the road condition of the car park and the realignment of bay numbers in each space, says the council. 

Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Environment & Safety Cllr Inglis said: “We’re resurfacing Bridgford Road Car Park in the coming weeks to help smooth and maintain the road surface enabling it to be sustainable for many years to come.


“We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this temporary closure for the duration of the works to allow a contractor on site each day.


“The works have deliberately been scheduled to not clash with local sports or larger events and we’re very much aware of the knock-on effect this will have on the town centre. 


“Business owners and our partners at Bridgford Hall have been notified of the plans and are informing customers, wedding bookings and other parties so they can make other arrangements. 


“Visitors can still access our other car parks on Albert Road and Gordon Road in West Bridgford and a temporary car park at Bridge Field will be open weather dependent. 


“We encourage the use of public transport wherever possible with excellent bus links to the town centre.”
