The new A610 bus lane will cut journey times and improve the reliability of northbound bus services, according to Transport Nottingham.
Bus services that will benefit from the introduction of the bus lane and further bus priority measures include the high frequency rainbow one service operated by trentbarton, whilst retaining all existing road capacity for all other traffic.
Improvements in cycle connectivity will also support better access to the Nottingham Road quiet route, with pedestrian crossing facilities also improved at the junction of Cinderhill Island with Bells Lane.
This scheme builds on existing improvements made along the A610 bus corridor. These include the upgraded digital public transport information at bus stops and traffic light priority for late running buses as part of package of bus service improvement measures being delivered as part of the Transforming Cities Fund Programme.
