A453 WIDENING PLANS ON HOLD
Plans to widen the link between Clifton and the south of Nottingham with junction 24 of the M1 have been put on hold, as part of government plans to save £6.2 billion. Work on the £194m project to widen the A453 was due to start in the autumn, but new chancellor George Osborne has said plans will be deferred indefinitely. The widening of the current single lane road, which would have seen up to eight lanes in some parts, has been discussed for more than a decade. An inquiry into the plans has already been held and a final decision was expected very shortly.
