Hucknall’s pothole-plagued Carlingford Road is set to be revamped after a high-profile campaign by a local group - but the street will be closed while work is carried out.

Notts County Council confirmed that a full resurfacing of the road is planned from Monday to Thursday, November 9 to 12, from 7.30am to 5pm each day.

Coun John Wilmott, of Hucknall First Community Forum, drew attention to the ‘shocking’ state of Carlingford Road and streets in the town and invited highways chairman, Coun Kevin Greaves and his officers to visit the area and see for themselves what needs doing.

Coun Wilmott said: “There was a whole-hearted response to a petition organised by the forum for Carlingford Road to be improved. It will inevitably cause some upheaval but the end-result will make it well worthwhile. I hope it leads to similar action being taken on other Hucknall roads which are in a bad state.”

Project engineer Lee Newton says the work will be carried out by Tarmac and a no-parking order will be in force; any car left on Carlingford Road during the period of the work could be given a penalty-charge notice by a civil enforcement officer and could be towed.

One car from each household can park on Piggins Croft car park, and parking permits will be issued nearer the time.

Anyone with special circumstances, such as disabled access or health visits, should call 01623 444854 or email lee.newton@nottscc.gov.uk
