Leicester North West transport project

We Asked

The consultation was held to inform people of the Leicester North West Phase 2 scheme proposal at the five-ways junction, Blackbird Road / Anstey Lane junction, Ravensbridge Drive/A6 junction and on Abbey Gate. We also asked for people’s opinions, comments and suggestions about the proposals.

You Said

A total of 82 people attended the staffed public exhibition, held over four days, and 74 people responded to the online consultation. Four emails with comments were also received.

Although there were some concerns noted (as detailed in the consultation report), these tended to be reflective of individuals' needs rather than affecting the wider area. A lot of positive comments for the scheme were received as people recognised the need for something to be done in the area.

We Did

The comments received will help to inform the detailed design and (as and when construction takes place) will assist the contractor with how best to manage the works in liaison with local residents, businesses and general public who use the area.

Overview

The Leicester North West Major transport project is a multi-million pound improvement scheme designed to meet Leicester and Leicestershire’s future transport needs.

The scheme covers an area broadly bounded by the A50 (Groby Road), A6 (Loughborough Road) and A46 (Western bypass) where significant housing growth is planned.

The government has made more than £16million available for this project, and the city and county councils have contributed £3million.

Phase 1 of the project was completed in 2016, and involved improvement works on the A50 Groby Road / Leicester Road and the A563 outer ring road (specifically to the County Hall roundabout, New Parks Way roundabout and the Aikman Avenue junction).

Why We Are Consulting

We are now entering Phase 2 of the project, which will involve work across the North Western approach to Leicester city centre. We would like to hear your views on the changes we plan to make.
