Eastern corridor improvements (Fisher Gate, Manvers Street, Daleside Road)
The Eastern Cycle City Corridor work area extends along Daleside Road to the east of the City. The overall scheme will provide high capacity, high frequency east-west low emission transport options.
The cycle corridor will extend to and from City Link out along Manvers Street and Daleside Road as far as Vale Road in Colwick. It will provide a high quality two-way cycle route on the north side of the road, segregated from traffic and pedestrians. The existing shared path from the Racecourse to Vale Road will be resurfaced and cyclists will have priority over motor vehicles at side roads.
We are aware that the routes from City Link to the City Centre and Railway Station need to be improved for both cyclists and pedestrians. These links will be provided as part of the changes to the Broadmarsh area, highway changes in the Creative Quarter on the east side of the City Centre (known as Connecting Eastside) and the upgrade of Plough Lane through the expansion of Bio City. We are also exploring options for interim improvements, such as enhanced connections to the Canal.
There will be further consultation on these schemes on the Building a Better Nottingham website as these plans are progressed.
Consultation took place between 26th May and 24th June 2016. Further discussions have also been held with businesses and residents along Daleside Road.
There will be further consultation on the details of the scheme through the formal Traffic Regulation Orders process.
Construction will be carried out in phases.
Phase 1 (from Sneinton Hermitage to Trent Lane) commencing on 3rd October 2016 and scheduled for completion in March 2017.
Phase 2 (Trent Lane to Racecourse Road) and Phase 3 (Racecourse Road to Vale Road) will commence in 2017 with overall completion programmed for December 2017. The exact programme will be supplied once details are finalised.
