Welcome to this first email bulletin about the Gedling Access Road which you previously subscribed to. This bulletin will keep you updated on all the progress and major developments until the new road is in operation.

The Gedling Access Road is a new 3.8km single carriageway that will link the B684 Mapperley Plains to the A612 Trent Valley Road. 

Once complete, the new road will significantly reduce traffic travelling through Gedling Village and will help to unlock the potential of the former Gedling Colliery/Chase Farm site.
