Traffic disruption is expected as work begins on the transformation of a busy roundabout in Nottingham. Lane closures will be in place in and around the roundabout where Derby Road and Upper Parliament Street meet Maid Marian Way from Tuesday, May 7.

Nottingham City Council is replacing the current layout with a T-junction, with the traffic light-controlled junction also incorporating pedestrian crossings and improved cycle facilities. The changes mean the current green space in the middle of the roundabout will be replaced by areas of planting around the edges of the new junction.

A host of traffic management changes will be in place for 24 hours seven days a week while work takes place. The inner traffic lane of the roundabout will be coned off, as well as the offside approach lanes.

Maid Marian Way's southbound offside lane will also be coned off and the pedestrian crossing at Mount Street will be closed. Pedestrians will still be able to use crossing points at the roundabout.

Bus routes will not be changed as a result of the works, but Nottingham City Transport said some delays are likely. "In this first phase of works, there are no changes to bus routes or stops, but there will be lane closures which may cause delays to Navy 4, Pink 28, 30, Orange 34, 35, 36 and Turquoise 77, 78, 79/A," it posted on X.

Funding for the scheme was secured through the government's Future High Street Fund. The new junction is expected to be completed in spring 2025.
