Gedling Access Road

Project Overview

Service: Earthworks
Project: Geddling Access Road
Location: Nottinghamshire
Client: Balfour Beatty
Value: £6,000,000,00

Mick George Earthworks completed Enabling Works for the Gedling Access Road scheme. 

This 3.8km single carriageway road development for Nottingham County Council will provide a link between the B684 Mapperley Plains and the A612 Trent Valley Road/Nottingham Road, running through the old Gedling Colliery site to serve a new £140m Chase Farm housing estate, which was largely dependent on the road being built.

Only 315 of the 1,050 homes planned for the estate can be built until the new road is finished. New industrial units and a drive-through restaurant have also been given permission next to the road.

Gedling Access Road Key Statistics

 

  • 64,000t of soil diverted from landfill through in-situ soil modification to render suitable for re-use as an engineered fill material.

Gedling Access Road Project Details

The Gedling access road is expected to significantly reduce traffic through Gedling Village, as well as linking communities in the area to the wider Nottinghamshire boundaries, while progressing the sustainable redevelopment of the former Gedling Colliery/Chase Farm site.

Nottinghamshire County Council has been safeguarding proposals for a Gedling village bypass for more than 50 years, and GAR forms part of the proposals for the A612 Nottingham eastern outer loop road – the rest of which has already been completed by the council.
