Water Leak Disrupts High Street

Ruddington drivers, traders and shoppers are being warned they may face unexpected disruption in our village centre – following a burst water main today. ‘No Parking’ restrictions and four-way temporary traffic signals have been put in place at the junction of Church Street and Easthorpe Street whilst Severn Trent Water identifies and repairs the leak. It’s being anticipated the problem could take until this Wednesday 18th May*, to fix – although Severn Trent is hoping to complete its work sooner. Meantime, residents and visitors can expect the disruption to continue…

Beware Ruddington Road Restrictions

A weekend of parking prohibition along Mere Way, a morning of temporary traffic lights on High Street and a further complete closure of Dutton’s Hill are among the scheduled works liable to cause disruption over the coming days and weeks in and around Ruddington. Firstly, during all of the weekend Saturday and Sunday 14th and 15th May, and again on Saturday 21st May, many motorists who use Mere Way to park up whilst visiting Rushcliffe Country Park or Nottingham Transport Heritage Centre will not be able to do so. Most of the parking will…

More Village Centre Road Closures

Further complete closures of Ruddington’s main shopping street and Dutton’s Hill are among the roadworks liable to cause disruption over the next few months in and around our village. Firstly, there’s Easter Day work (Sunday 17th April) by Severn Trent for repair and maintenance on High Street, meaning the road will be closed throughout the day with diversions in operation. Nottingham City Transport says between 08:00-17:00 its Green 10/C service will divert: turning left onto Easthorpe St, right on the A60 and right onto Kirk Lane (10) or straight on…

New Emergency Works Cause Delays

Drivers accessing Ruddington along Clifton Road are facing unexpected hold-ups after temporary traffic lights appeared there this morning (Thursday 24th March). A gas leak was detected between the Old Station Drive turn and the Pasture Lane roundabout – resulting in Cadent Gas installing 24 hour two-way signals and digging up the westbound carriageway over the former railway bridge. As this is one of Ruddington’s busiest routes, motorists are being warned to expect delays – especially at peak times – while the escape is traced, excavated and repaired.  We’re being warned…

Easter Roadworks on Loughborough Road

After a number of roadworks around Ruddington at the start of the year, there’s another ‘lull’ in scheduled highway work around our village until this spring. Find details of temporary traffic lights due to emergency gas work on Clifton Road >>HERE<<.

Further work by Severn…

Ruddington Roadworks Return

After a ‘lull’ over the Christmas and New Year period, the road diggers will be out and about again in Ruddington over the coming weeks. Work by Severn Trent originally scheduled to take place at one of our busiest junctions last Sunday only (9th January) will now be taking place over two weekends this month. Thankfully this water connection work – at the crossroads of Loughborough, Kirk Lane and Flawforth Avenue – is still scheduled just on Sundays: the 16th and 23rd January. This means the disruption for motorists should be kept…

New Year Roadworks at Manor Park

During 2021 villagers and visitors suffered unprecedented and disruptive roadworks in Ruddington – many of them to facilitate the construction of four major new housing developments on our former Green Belt. Thankfully, so far, things are looking rather quieter to start 2022. The first major highway work this month is for Severn Trent to dig up Loughborough Road in two places – firstly on a Sunday* and then on a Thursday** – with potentially disruptive temporary traffic lights in use during both. More significant for those who live on Manor Park, or…

Ruddington’s Festive Roadworks

This year villagers and visitors have suffered unprecedented and disruptive roadworks in Ruddington – many of them to facilitate the construction of four major new housing developments on our former village Green Belt.

The current Wilford Road work by BT is off-peak only. The three-way traffic lights originally planned by Severn Trent for…

Village Centre Roadworks Postponed

In another strange but welcome turn of events, the planned work by Severn Trent Water around Kempson Street, which was due to start today (Tuesday 30th November), has been called off! Ruddington traders and motorists had been dreading more disruption and delays coming, as it was, straight after Cadent had only just completed its over-running gas main repair work. This had closed Wilford Road at Dutton’s Hill for almost two weeks, causing peak time traffic chaos. The new work by Severn Trent is required to provide a new water connection for additional homes (artist’s…
