The investment in the new access road will result in unlocking significant new jobs and homes for the area whilst creating a more sustainable and reliable transport infrastructure for Gedling and the surrounding area.
Main construction work is due to last 18 months, once complete in the Autumn of 2021, the almost 4km long road will run between the existing A612 Trent Valley Road/Nottingham Road and the B684 Mapperley Plains Road.
