Roadworks on High Street and Ashworth Avenue

Ruddington’s motorists are being warned to brace themselves for more autumn disruption as our raft of recent village roadworks continues over the next couple of weeks.

From 6am this Saturday 26th October until 8pm Sunday 27th October, work by Western Power Distribution on High Street means double yellow lines and parking places between its junctions with Charles Street and Church Street will be unavailable. Temporary “No Waiting and No Loading at Any Time” restrictions will be in force whilst manually controlled two-way traffic signals are liable to cause delays for both motorists and Nottingham City Transport’s Navy 3 and Green 10 buses. Shoppers are being encouraged to walk to the village centre this weekend if possible – otherwise to catch the bus.

Then, the resurfacing of Ashworth Avenue is due to take place between 7.30am on Monday 28th October and 5.00pm on Friday 1st November.

It will be “closed from its junction with the A60 Loughborough Road for a distance of 410 metres” – although contractors promise resident access will be maintained during this period. Whilst the road is closed to through traffic, however, two-way traffic signals will also be in use at the junction, between 9.00am and 3.00pm each day, and that will impact drivers along the A60, as well!

During this period Nottingham City Transport’s Green 10/10C service will be affected as follows:

  • Towards Ruddington buses will stay on the A60 and turn right on to Kirk Lane and left in to High Street to Ruddington Green. Afternoon 10C buses will continue via Church Street, passing Ruddington Church then back along Kirk Lane to the Business Park.
  • Towards the City buses will stay on Easthorpe Street, turning left on to the A60.
  • Stops on Ashworth Avenue, Packman Drive, St Mary’s Crescent and Easthorpe Street will not be served. Please use stops on Loughborough Road, or a temporary stop (to City only) on Easthorpe Street near the Rufford Road junction.

As if this wasn’t enough, there’ll be overnight works from 8.00pm until 6.00am from Wednesday 30th October to Thursday 31st October on Loughborough Road at its junction with Flawforth Lane & Kirk Lane, with four-way signals in use. It’s for a “Ground Penetrating Radar survey of ducts and chambers for Survey Hub” although it says no excavation will be required. This survey work then continues at the Loughborough Road/Mere Way Roundabout on Tuesday 6th November from 9.30am until 3.30pm where three-way signals will be needed. This will soon be the entry point for 180 new houses recently approved on our Green Belt by Rushcliffe Borough Council.
