Leicester North West transport project

Closed 26 May 2017

Opened 18 Apr 2017


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.
