A drop in session is to be held on Wednesday 6th March to provide an opportunity for locals to find out about forthcoming works on Southchurch Drive in Clifton and to ask questions of the Nottingham Express Transit Phase Two project team. The work on Southchurch Drive is due to commence from Monday 11th March and last for eight months.
With the closures of Southchurch Drive lasting for eight months it is likely to be a disruptive time for local residents and businesses and so the team involved in Phase Two of Nottingham Express Transit are keen to allay any fears they may have. The work taking place will include utility diversion, installing tram tracks and building tram stops.
Southchurch Drive will be closed between Swansdowne Drive and Green Lane and only residents and access will be allowed between Farnborough Road and Rivergreen. Access to
properties, shops and other facilities will be maintained and all shops will continue to be open for business as normal.
Chris Deas, NET Phase Two Project Director at Nottingham City Council, said: “These drop-in events are one of the many ways people can get up-to-date information about the NET construction works. We hope as many people as possible come along to ask us questions.”
There will be signed traffic diversions in place and the majority of bus services which normally operate in the area will be diverted although operating to their usual timetables.
Further works will have to take place on Southchurch Drive between the junction of Rivergreen and Swansdowne Drive and on Farnborough Road but further details of these works have yet to be announced.
The drop-in session takes place on Wednesday 6th March at the Clifton Cornerstone, Southchurch Drive between 1600 and 1800.
