The works depot for the new 'town centre relief road' is visible ahead. The road was opened in November 2016. The overall 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. The plans also incorporated flood relief measures, some of which are seen here. This stream, the Whyburn, has a total length of around 2.5 miles (4.0 km), and terminates in a confluence with the River Leen immediately upstream of Mill Lakes, Bestwood Village.
