Subject to favourable weather conditions, various highway works are scheduled to take place in our village during the first half of this month which are liable to cause delays and disruption for drivers and for Ruddington bus services.
Starting this Monday, 3rd February, work by Severn Trent to install a water connection to the new ‘Willow Court’ property development on Easthorpe Street, approximately 150m west of the A60 Loughborough Road junction means two-way traffic signals are set to be in use for up to four days from 8.00am to 5.00pm. This will be followed from Monday 10th February to Friday 14th February 2020 by further work to the same site requiring 24 hour two-way traffic signals to install four new gas connections to the properties by Cadent.
This Monday and Tuesday, February 3rd & 4th between 9.30am and 3.30pm there’ll be a lane closure to dig trial holes on Mere Way at the roundabout junction with A60 Loughborough Rd being undertaken by Via East Midlands. This is though to be in connection with the approved plans for 180 new green field houses by William Davis Homes to be accessed from there.
This Wednesday 5th February from 9.30am to 3.30pm there are set to be more three way traffic signals on the A60 Loughborough Rd at its junction with Ashworth Avenue – to cut slots in the carriageway for a new power supply.
From Saturday 8th to Wednesday 12th February 24-hour two-way temporary signals return on the B680 Wilford Road near Sellors’ Recreation Ground (below) for the removal of the current mobile mast and installation of a new mast and cabinets and commissioning of the new equipment – by O2 (UK) Limited.

Finally, in connection with building the new Ruddington shopping precinct alongside number 2 High Street, construction by Whytemac means the current footpath closure, restriction of parking and reduced road width there is set to continue until Monday 25th May 2020.
