Overview

Leicester City Council are seeking views on the proposed construction of a new pedestrian refuge on Gipsy Lane between the junctions with Yorkshire Road and Tiverton Avenue. In addition to this there are plans to put in place new road markings at various junctions on Gipsy Lane. As the highway authority responsible for the Gipsy Lane area, intervention is required to reduce accidents in the area and improve overall safety for cyclists, pedestrians and other road users.

Why We Are Consulting

This consultation is aimed at the residents in the area to inform them of the proposals. This will allow local residents, who see traffic related issues on a daily basis to inform and input in to the draft proposals. We hope to confirm that our draft proposals generally meet with the approval of the local residents. We will consider the feedback from the 4 week consultation process and where appropriate, design changes can be made to the draft proposals.
