A453 Improvements


Between September 2012 and February 2013 archaeologists carried out a series of excavations in advance of works to upgrade the A453 between junction 24 of the M1 and the A52 near Clifton, Nottingham.
Two areas contained significant archaeological remains (Sites 7 and 28). These lay to on the southern side of the former line of the A453 between Barton in Fabis and Clifton near Nottingham. Both sites lay within the Trent Valley, just above the floodplain. 


The road scheme was sponsored by the Highways Agency (now Highways England) and designed by WYG Engineering Ltd. The archaeological works were commissioned and supported by Laing O’Rourke Construction Ltd.
