Woodborough W.I.

We all enjoyed hearing about the Mitford Family at our September meeting.

Our next meeting is on Monday 18th October. We have Phillip Burley coming to introduce us to “Puzzles, Past and Present” and we will need to bring our hand sanitizers as we will be trying out the puzzles he brings. It promises to be another fun afternoon!

W.I. is now meeting at the newly refurbished Institute on Main Street from 2pm – 4pm! Our meetings will continue to be interesting, interactive, fun and friendly! Visitors are welcome -there is no charge.

So if you feel that you might enjoy coming along – come and give us a try!

Lambley Lane reopening

Take note of the new road layout on Lambley Lane

That’s right, Lambley Lane is now open to traffic! Whether you’re travelling from the direction of Arnold Lane or Spring Lane, it’s important to remember that the road now has a new layout. 

All traffic using Lambley Lane will now travel along a short section of the GAR, which links both ends together.

If you’re travelling from Spring Lane, you will need to turn right at the junction with the GAR before turning left onto the new link road a short while later. You will then come to a new mini roundabout back on Lambley Lane. 

If you’re travelling from the direction of Arnold Lane, you will need to turn left at the mini roundabout and head towards the junction with the GAR. Here, you will turn right onto the GAR and then turn left at the new spur road which will take you up towards Spring Lane. 

But don’t just take our word for it, why not see the route for yourselves on our Lambley Lane new road layout video?

What’s been happening on site?

GAR progress update

It’s been another busy month along the 3.8km stretch of GAR, with one of the main focuses of works being the area around Lambley Lane. 

Ahead of its reopening today, construction teams have been  adding white lines to the section of GAR that traffic will drive along, as well as completing verge works and the installation of road signage along the same section. 

Elsewhere on site, significant works have been taking place up the hill from Burton Road, and across the next few months, works in this area will include surfacing and the installation of kerbs. 

What’s happening at Mapperley Plains

If you’ve driven along Mapperley Plains recently, you might have noticed works increasing in the area. 

Well, that’s because our teams are busy constructing a new footpath and the new junction for where GAR will meet Mapperley Plains. 

Earthworks, drainage works and the installation of kerbs are all part of what the teams will be doing on site in the next couple of weeks, and for motorists, this means that a nearside lane closure must remain in place to ensure they can work safely.
