Albert Street Vicinity, Hucknall, Notts.
This 'town centre relief road' is a feature of Hucknall’s current town centre improvement scheme (TCIS). It was opened in November 2016. This is a view from its mid-point (approx) between the new Annesley Road mini-roundabout the Station Road/Ashgate Road area. Buses travelling towards Nottingham from the Wighay area of Hucknall now turn right near the car seen here in order to rejoin High Street. The overall improvement 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 work started on site in January 2016. The work, including a pedestrianised section of High Street between Baker Street and Watnall Road, is due to be completed in May 2017. The overall scheme aims to reduce traffic congestion, create an attractive shopping centre, attract new retailers and to assist in the regeneration of the town. Flood prevention measures are being strengthen simultaneously, as part of the project.
