Ruddington’s June Roadworks

As previously reported, Ruddington’s motorists are already facing longer and longer delays at the Loughborough Road/Kirk Lane/Flawforth Lane traffic lights caused by increased traffic volumes unmitigated by delayed junction improvement work there.

Now we’re also being warned about additional hold-ups and disruption this summer due to roadworks scheduled along Loughborough Road and elsewhere in our village – even before this long overdue junction work finally begins.

In June 2023 alone, there’s a week of water pipe renewals on the A60, five days of gas work by The Green and a weekend of mobile mast work along Mere Way. Further disruption is then anticipated in July and August, with temporary lights and road closures thanks to more water and electricity supply work and a return to carriageway patching.

The scheduled Ruddington roadworks most likely to cause problems in the next three months are:-

Monday 5th June 2023 to Friday 9th June 2023 – 09:30 Hours to 15:30 Hours – Two-Way Temporary Traffic Signals on A60 Loughborough Road, near Old Loughborough Road – small PRV renew works by Severn Trent Water.

Thursday 15th June to Monday 19th June 2023give and take traffic control for disconnection/alteration of supply on The Green – by Cadent Gas.

Saturday 24th June 2023 & Sunday 25th June 2023 – 08:00 Hours To 18:00 Hours Four-Way Temporary Traffic Signals on Mere Way at the roundabout with A60 Loughborough Road – Installation of 3 x MIMO Antenna by O2.

Additionally, from the 27th July to 31st August, National Grid will be carrying out utility asset works on St Mary’s Crescent, Rufford Road and Easthorpe Street with temporary traffic lights also in use.
