Temporary Closure on Station Street for Public Realm Improvements

Works are due to commence on Station Street as part of the final stages of Nottingham Station's redevelopment, which is now reaching completion and due to be opened to the public later this spring.

From Monday 24 February 2014, for approximately five weeks, there will be no vehicle access for general traffic from Station Street into Carrington Street, in order that public realm improvement works can be carried out.

The section of Station Street from Trent Street to Carrington Street therefore, will be closed to traffic, except for access to businesses and shops, although the pay and display parking bays on this section of road will be suspended during these works to allow safe turning movements without obstruction. Taxis will still be able to rank on the south side of Station Street, as per current arrangements.

Temporary pedestrian walkways will be installed around the works while the improvements take place and pedestrian routes to and from the station will be maintained at all times.

The remainder of Station Street from Canal Street / Trent Street to London Road will be unaffected by the works.

Once these public realm improvements have taken place, drainage works are intended to start in early April as part of the NET tram extension project. This will involve a further closure of Station Street, between Trent Street and Carrington Street until approximately June.  More details about these works will be provided nearer to the time.
