Motorists who travel to and from Ruddington via Clifton have found themselves delayed again today (Monday 6th March 2023) – after Severn Trent were called in to fix a leaking water valve on Clifton Road near the junction with Old Station Drive. Drivers are advised these two-way temporary traffic lights are likely to remain in place until this Wednesday 8th – by which time it’s hoped the necessary repair or replacement will be completed. It comes shortly after a gas leak outside Hilltop Cottage on Clifton Lane which also saw 24-hour two-way temporary traffic…Read More
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…Read More
Roadworks return to Ruddington in 2023 – including further disruption and delays likely along Loughborough Road, Flawforth Lane and Kirk Lane this month. On the weekends of Saturday & Sunday 7th & 8th January, 14th & 15th January and Saturday 21st January four-way temporary traffic lights will be in use A60 Loughborough Road/Mere Way/Yarrow Drive roundabout whilst Great British Telecommunications excavates for a telegraph pole with associated cabinet and ducting from 8.00am to 6.00pm each day. Then on Wednesday 11th January between 09.30am and 3.30pm a post replacement is planned by Via…Read More
What’s Happening With The White Horse Car Park?
A Ruddington pub boss says he was ‘shocked’ that Parish Councillors did not wish to renew a popular, long-running scheme to provide much needed extra parking in our village centre. To address the increasing difficulty in finding a space, an agreement was reached back in 2014 between Ruddington Parish Council (RPC) and The White Horse Inn that the left hand side of their car park could be used by village shoppers from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday. This has been the case until recently – when RUDDINGTON.info was alerted…Read More
Ruddington’s November Roadworks
Village motorists are being warned to expect further hold-ups and disruption in the coming weeks; both as contractors carry out various highway works and festive events begin in Ruddington. First up, this Monday and Tuesday (31st October & 1st November) there will be two-way traffic lights on Loughborough Road south of the Mere Way/Yarrow Drive Roundabout as improvements are made to the footpath there. Some delays are likely. Then, the work which was scheduled to take place on High Street last week is now due to happen this week instead, after…Read More
Shine a Light!
As the darker nights return, drivers and pedestrians in Ruddington may be pleased to hear that long-awaited work to replace a missing lighting column in our village centre is scheduled for this weekend. It’s around a year since an electrical fault in the base of the street light at the corner of High Street and Charles Street caused it to rather dramatically burst into flames and then slowly ‘wilt’ to the floor. The top of the burnt out column was subsequently cut off, and the remaining stump covered up on…Read More
Ruddington motorists are being warned to brace themselves for more delays as contractors return this week – apparently to continue fixing a water leak first spotted by local residents during the second week of August. There were queues in all directions at the weekend as Severn Trent carried out work on Flawforth Lane at its junction with Loughborough Road and Kirk Lane to mend the pipe. Now it seems the four way temporary traffic lights are set to return from 7.00am this Wednesday (24th August) until 4.00pm on Friday (26th…Read More
New Parking Restrictions Start Soon
Residents and visitors wishing to park in the Easthorpe Street area of Ruddington will soon have fewer options – due to new parking prohibitions being introduced along a residential side road. Nottinghamshire County Council (NCC) has revealed its work to paint new double yellow lines all along the eastern side and top turning circle of Cumberland Close is scheduled to take place from March 7th to 9th. The new ‘no parking at any time’ restrictions are the result of a campaign by home owners in the village cul-de-sac. There’s been long-standing…Read More
A Cumberland Close Compromise?
New proposals to resolve access issues for residents in a Ruddington cul-de-sac, whilst still enabling some parking there for those who need it, have been put out for consultation. As RUDDINGTON.info reported in August, after numerous complaints about inconsiderate parking and damage to vehicles, there was a previous consultation by Via East Midlands (on behalf of Nottinghamshire County Council) which proposed prohibiting all parking on Cumberland Close between 9am and 5pm every day. This caused dismay among some residents and businesses along Easthorpe Street who have no off-street parking of their own…Read More
Pay Parking Plans Rejected
Ruddington Parish Councillors have again said “no” to imposing a time restriction or long stay parking charges in their Church Street Car Park. As we reported earlier this week, following an approach from Ruddington Co-op, the idea was revisited at last night’s full Parish Council Meeting (October 12th). Although parking would have remained free for up to two hours (with the two options put forward either making that the maximum stay or imposing parking charges after that) Councillors voted unanimously against both parking proposals by Horizon Parking Ltd which it had made…Read More
