Upper Parliament Street scheduled to re-open on Monday after repairs

1 1

Nottingham City Council have been undertaking works to repair and resurface sections of Upper Parliament Street from 8pm on Friday 10 August and plan to reopen at 5am on Monday 13 August.

Over 250 buses an hour travel down the section of the road between the Theatre Royal and the intu Victoria Centre – some of the heaviest bus traffic in the city – meaning it is in need of maintenance to ensure it remains safe for all road users.

The works have been scheduled for the school holidays when traffic is lighter, to cause less disruption to traffic and shoppers. The council’s highways teams will work 24 hours to ensure the job is completed as quickly as possible.

Councillor Dave Liversidge, Nottingham City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Transport said: “The sheer number of buses that operate on Upper Parliament has meant that the surface is in need of repair. We will be reinforcing the bus stop bays with an extra durable material which will be able to better withstand the weight of the buses.

“Teams worked overnight and throughout the weekend to get the job done as quickly as possible, but we know that this has been disruptive and apologise for any inconvenience that these works caused.”
