The 1940s aerial layer of Nottingham City Council’s Insight Mapping shows cycle tracks and footways beside Arnold Road. The cycle tracks were probably installed sometime between 1937 and 1939 when the city council built stretches of cycle track alongside several of Nottingham’s arterial roads. See, CLIFTON & MIDDLETON BOULEVARDS, NOTTINGHAM.
