GAR flyover

Latest flyover shows progress on GAR

From Burton Road, all the way up to Mapperley Plains, it’s certainly been a busy few weeks on-site. 

This month’s flyover shows the amazing progress that’s been made throughout February, with new roundabout construction, surfacing works and earthworks just some of the highlights to look out for. 

You can also watch our previous flyovers all the way back to our very first in May 2020 to see the full extent of the progress.

It’s beginning to look like a road!

GAR surfacing works

You may have seen works taking place at the Burton Road junction and at Mapperley Plains, but don’t forget all of the areas in between!

2.8 kilometres of new kerbs have now been installed towards the middle of the route, along with a total of 8,500 tonnes of surfacing material! But that’s not all – construction teams have also now installed around 500 tonnes of footway surfacing. 

Eagle eyed viewers of the latest flyover will recognise this progress, so, can you see it?

Temporary lights to be installed at junction

Temporary lights to be installed

From Tuesday 6 April, temporary four-way traffic lights will be installed on Mapperley Plains at the junction with Plains Road, Arnold Lane and Gedling Road. 

These signals will allow our construction teams to install new crossings at this junction. 

Please note that these signals will be in place for two weeks and will be followed by lane restrictions on Mapperley Plains for a further week.
