A new aerial image shows the progress on work to demolish the former Broadmarsh shopping centre in Nottingham. Latest images of the site show the former shopping mall has now almost been completely removed following its demise during the pandemic.

It comes after Nottingham City Council confirmed plans for a new pedestrian route that is being to be opened up across the demolished section of the former Broadmarsh shopping centre as the areas undergoes huge change.

The council said now that contractors have demolished a substantial section of the shopping centre, including areas most recently occupied by Argos, BHS, Boots and TK Maxx among others, it’s possible to provide a pedestrian link between Collin Street and Lister Gate. The new route will open later this summer with the previous covered walkway being closed.

City Council Leader, Councillor David Mellen, said: “There are huge changes underway in the Broad Marsh area, with vastly improved streets creating pleasant areas to walk and relax, along with the new car park that’s already open, bus station that’s now started running coach services and the Central Library where fit-out gets underway this summer.

“Of course, one of the major changes is the demolition of the former shopping centre, which makes way for a fantastic vision of what could replace it. We’re pleased that this phase of demolition is now nearing completion, allowing us to open up a new open air pedestrian route between the Southside and city centre for the first time in almost fifty years.

“This is a small but significant step towards creating a reimagined gateway to the city that will play an important role in Nottingham’s future, making it a more attractive and accessible part of the city.”

The new pedestrian route across the site will eventually be fully developed to tie in with the Collin Street improvements and become part of the ‘green heart’ space that’s been set out in the vision for the Broad Marsh site. The walkway will be four metres wide, with lighting and CCTV and bollards at either end, fenced off from the demolition site either side with windows to see progress on the site.
