Streets close for new city route

Three more streets have been closed as work continues towards a major transport project in Derby.

The first part of the £36.2m inner ring road system - Connecting Derby - is due to open next year - almost 50 years after it was first proposed.

Wilson Street, Gerard Street and Forester Street have been permanently shut off.

The government funded scheme will see a new road constructed between Bradshaw Way and Uttoxeter New Road.

Derby City Council has said it will carry out continuous monitoring to assess routes and ensure disruption to motorists is kept to a minimum.

The first section of the new road is expected to open in March 2010.
