Closure of Hucknall Road (updated)

This disruption is no longer in place.

Hucknall Road is to be closed for an additional day to enable the completion of the resurfacing works.

On Sunday 1st July between 08:00-20:00 Brown 17 will divert as below. We expect severe delays to this service due to the length of the diversion route and expected traffic levels.

Please accept our sincerest apologies and thank you for your on-going patience.

The work will be taking place from the junction of Arnold Road to the junction of Gala Way and will begin on Monday 18 June. The work is expected to take around 10 days to complete, between the hours of 9.30am and 3.30pm Monday to Friday.

During the work, Hucknall Road (highlighted red in the map) will be closed to through traffic.
