Nottingham Ring Road
Thomas Bow City Asphalt have now completed works on one of Nottingham’s busiest road. The project, which began in July 2013, was funded by £12.8m from the Department for Transport and £3.4m from Nottingham City Council.
The ring road carries some 50,000 vehicles every day and with two of the region’s main Hospitals located at either end of the scheme, maintaining traffic flow has been essential to the design and delivery of the scheme. Alex Gardner, Contracts Director at Thomas Bow City Asphalt has been involved in the scheme from the outset to advise on surfacing methods and programming to minimise disruption.
The works included the widening of the northbound carriageway of Crown Island from two to three lanes, Middleton Boulevard has also been widened southbound from Crown Island to the Queen’s Medical Centre roundabout.
Talking about the project Alex Gardner said “This has been a long-standing project for us and it’s great to work on an asset which we will all use on a daily basis. The improved traffic flows are already noticeable and hopefully, the residents and visitors to the city will feel that this has been an extremely worthwhile project.”
