Gedling Access Road

What’s happening at Mapperley Plains?

Gedling Access Road

Our construction teams have been working hard to tie the new junction of GAR into the existing carriageway at Mapperley Plains. 

If you’ve driven along Mapperley Plains this week, you will have seen that the traffic lights at Chartwell Grove were removed as planned following two weeks of work to form the new footpath and carry out verge works. 

Alongside these works, surfacing was completed across the middle of the new junction, so if you’re passing, you will be able to see the top end of GAR taking shape. 

Mapperley Plains roadworks update

GAR news

Temporary four-way traffic signals are in place at the Mapperley Plains/Arnold Lane/Gedling Road/Plains Road junction until 16 November. 

Lane closures are also in place to allow our construction teams to work adjacent to the carriageway. 

From 17 November, these temporary signals will be removed, and works will move to the footway on the opposite side of the road. 

Please note that traffic management will be in place while our teams work, but that the normal number of lanes in each direction will be maintained. 

This second phase will be in place until Christmas. 

We would like to thank you for your patience whilst we work in the area. 

…moving further down GAR…

Gedling Access Road

Moving down from Mapperley Plains along the route of the GAR, verge works have continued in the Gedling Country Park and Arnold Lane area. 

These works have included the construction of the 3 metre wide shared footway and cycle way adjacent to the new carriageway. 

Other progress in this area includes the installation of new lighting columns and road signs, the placing topsoil onto verge areas and the continuation of earthworks to fill the habitat enhancement area between the new embankment and Arnold Lane. 

Surfacing begins adjacent to Gedling House Woods

Gedling House Woods

Adjacent to Gedling House Woods, drainage works have now been completed. Road construction has continued all the way down the hill towards Burton Road and surfacing works are ongoing.

Footpath construction has also continued from the woods through to Lambley Lane. The installation of the environmental barrier fencing which will provide noise attenuation has also begun in this area.

A bit further down the site at Burton Road, earthworks have continued on the verge areas. These works will form the noise attenuation bund adjacent to Whitworth Drive.
