There are a number of works taking place around Nottingham which may affect travel to our campuses in July.
As part of finishing tram works, traffic on Lenton Lane and Gregory Street, between the junction with Willow Road and the junction with Old Church Street, will be controlled by temporary traffic lights from Saturday 4 July for approximately one week.
From Saturday 4 to Saturday 18 July, Abbey Bridge will be under two-way signal control for finishing works, with the Gregory Street junction closed while works are ongoing.
As part of the expansion of Nottingham’s tram network to Beeston and Chilwell, overnight works to finish surfacing the road are due to take place on University Boulevard on the nights of Saturday 4 July and Sunday 5 July. From 8pm to 5am on both nights, University Boulevard will be closed to traffic heading towards the city from its junction with Broadgate and Woodside Road to its junction with Queen’s Road East. A localised diversion will be in place. In addition, University Boulevard will be closed to traffic heading away from the city from its junction with Queen’s Road East to its junction with Broadgate and Woodside Road. Instead a signed localised diversion will be in place. During these times, University Boulevard will remain open to traffic heading in either direction from Queen’s Road East.
At a stage between 8pm and 6am, there will be a lane closure lasting two hours and as a result traffic heading out of the city on University Boulevard and wanting to turn into Queen’s Road East will have to turn right towards the Broadgate roundabout, where it will turn back on itself, go back along University Boulevard and then turn right into Queen’s Road East at the traffic lights.
