WHY EVEN LEAVE CURRENT SITE?

February 14, 2014 · Leave a Comment 

I read with interest a recent letter from Mike in Edwalton (Local News – January). He suggested moving the Rushcliffe Leisure Centre facilities to Holme Pierrepont. I am not sure this is a good idea in the slightest. For starters, there is no regular bus route there.

  The final sections of construction work to extend Nottingham’s tram service to Clifton via Wilford are expected to start on Southchurch Drive and Farnborough Road shortly. At the time of going to print, it seemed likely that the proposed beginning of February start date for the new work and completion of the current work would be delayed, but no date was set in concrete. The current works on Southchurch Drive, between Farnborough Road and Rivergreen, and between Swansdowne Drive and Green Lane, are now nearing completion. These sections of road will reopen to through traffic, including buses,... [Read the full story]
