One of the features of the town centre improvement scheme (TCIS) is to be the creation of a pedestrianised section of High Street between Baker Street and Watnall Road. The scheme received final funding approval from the Department for Transport in February 2015 (procured using the Medium Scheme Framework 2, through the Midlands Highway Alliance). Carillion/Tarmac JV were awarded the contract and the work started on site in January 2016 with an anticipated completion date of May 2017. The project aims to reduce traffic congestion, create an attractive shopping centre, attract new retailers and to assist in the regeneration of the town. The side elevation of the building straight ahead is that of a former malthouse. In addition, the prominent Central Methodist Church - seen from a new mini-roundabout at the town centre end of Annesley Road - faces the town's market square, although the latter is not visible here. A car is waiting to come out of Ogle Street. One end of the proposed pedestrianised section of the High Street will begin (or end) behind the security barriers ahead on the left. Motorists can opt to join one end of the newly opened (November 2016) 'town centre relief road' on the photographer's left.
