Construction work on Phase Two of Nottingham Express Transit is continuing with Cator Lane in Chilwell now reopened to traffic following the completion of works to install a water culvert, relocate various utilities and install the all important tram tracks. The road was able to reopen on Wednesday 16th July and this means that further work can now take place on Bramcote Lane.
Cllr Jane Urquhart, Nottingham City Council Portfolio Holder for Planning and Transportation, said: “The re-opening of Cator Lane is great news for the people of Chilwell as another of the main areas of construction work on NET Phase Two comes to an end, in line with the expectation that most of the works which have affected traffic will be completed by the end of the summer.”
Work has now moved onto Bramcote Lane where new street lights will be installed alongside new footpaths and road resurfacing. During this work temporary traffic lights will be in operation on Bramcote Lane between its junctions with Inham Road and Hall Drive.
It was recently announced that the opening of Phase Two of Nottingham Express will be delayed beyond the end of this year although an exact date has yet to be confirmed.
