The Council is proposing to install a segregated footway/cycleway along a length of Thurcaston Road, to create a cycle link between the Sidings and Leicester Marina. The proposed works are the first stage in this link.

In this first phase of the works, the cycle link will be along the existing footway on Thurcaston Road and is shown on the plan to the rear of this letter.

The City Council’s workforce will carry out the works, with a programmed start date of 3 February 2014. Works are expected to last about 6 weeks.

The council does not expect any disruptions to your property. If, however, you have any queries, comments or any special needs (special deliveries and the like) as a result of these proposals, please contact Mayur Pankhania on 0116 454 2879. You can also contact Robert Bateman on 0116 454 2877 or Paul Standley on 0116 454 2853 if you prefer.
