An unusual concrete pre-Worboys sign, at the old crossroads. The old A446 continues south off the old A453 here, to join the real A446. The modern rbt is behind the pub.

This is the GSJ on the A453 looking towards the A52. These NSL signs will also bite the dust.

Early plans for the M6 through Birmingham showed a junction between Junctions 6 and 7 that would have attracted commuters and short hops, therefore it was dropped from later plans.

The A453, east of the M1, is the major route between Nottingham, the M1 and Nottingham East Midlands Airport. It is one of the most congested roads in the country, carrying up to 30000 vehicles a day. Work on long-awaited major improvements to widen a seven mile stretch of the A453 between M1 Junction 24 and the A52 Nottingham Ring Road started in January 2013. The scheme is scheduled to be completed in summer 2015 and is planned to reduce congestion and make the route safer.


A new roundabout at Mill Hill will be sited to the west of the Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council boundary, and will provide a connection to the existing A453, Fox Covert Lane and Clifton Lane via a new link road. This road will provide a link to the new Nottingham Express Transit (NET) Park and Ride site, transporting people directly from Clifton into the centre of Nottingham by tram.

Bridge1972.jpg
View in 1972 of the A614 bypass of Nottingham being built, showing the Clifton Bridge being dualled at the Silverdale Interchange also known as the Queen's Drive Roundabout. View looks south from Lenton over the Trent. The junction is now the A453/A52.

Before the A453 was routed along Queen's Drive in 1978, Queen's Drive at this stage was the A6019. The A648 at that stage was what we now call the A453.

The Roundabout, as can be seen, was built first.
