Expect Kirk Lane Delays

Motorists are facing peak time delays on one of Ruddington’s busiest routes up until this weekend. A burst water main today (28th August) on Kirk Lane means that 24-hour two-way temporary traffic signals have been put in place to control traffic whilst Severn Trent Water carries out repairs to the pipe beneath the road.

As the snow thawed on Monday morning, householders in the other streets obeyed the new signs; to keep their roads…
