Further Raft of Ruddington Roadworks

Motorists who usually use Packman Drive to get in and out of Ruddington are being advised to use an alternative route for the next few days.

From Tuesday 21st to Friday 24th February a new water connection by Severn Trent will mean 24-hour three-way traffic signals in use on Packman Drive at its junction with Ling Crescent.

A gas leak outside Hilltop Cottage on Clifton Lane means 24-hour two-way temporary traffic lights are also in use there – and will remain in place until repairs are completed. Due to difficulties encountered by Cadent Gas, the estimated end date has been extended to Wednesday 1st March.

On Thursday 2nd March, from 9.30am to 1.00pm, four-way temporary traffic signals will be in use on Flawforth Lane at its junction with the A60 Loughborough Road and Kirk Lane for “recutting traffic loop” work.

Previously announced carriageway patching work is due to begin on various streets around Ruddington’s eastern estate next month. Road closures and parking restrictions are scheduled as follows:-

There’s further work by Severn Trent on Loughborough Road near the Old Loughborough Road junction, from 2nd to 7th March, with two-way temporary traffic lights controlling traffic during utility repair and maintenance there.

Easthorpe Street, near its junction with High Street, also has Severn Trent utility repair and maintenance work from 13th to 16th March, with stop/go boards in use.

Severn Trent is then due to be working on Pasture Lane, between the Junction of Roe Gardens and Cooper Gardens, on Tuesday 28th March between 7.00am and 4.00pm to repair/replace a defective manhole frame and covers – with two-way temporary traffic signals in use.

On Wednesday 29th March, from 9.30am until 3.30pm, BT Openreach will be outside 201 Loughborough Road. ‘Stop and Go boards’ will be used whilst work is carried out to the overhead network.

An announcement is expected shortly about the long awaited S278 junction improvement works at the Loughborough Road/Kirk Lane/Flawforth Lane junction – with ‘Phase 1’ likely to be over Easter and ‘Phase 2’ during the summer school holidays.

Then there’s further patching work, meaning residential street closures in the St John’s Road area, planned at the end of April.

Looking ahead to next year, National Highways has announced the long planned major roadworks to enlarge both the Nottingham Knight Island and Wheatcroft Island on the A52 should begin in September 2024.  Find more details >>HERE<<.
