Safer Streets Healthier Neighbourhoods - Knighton

Closed 7 Oct 2021

Opened 23 Sep 2021


Like many other parts of the city, Knighton has seen a steady increase in traffic levels over the past ten years. Residential streets in particular have been badly affected, with up to 75% of traffic being ‘through traffic’ and/or part of the school run in some areas such as Northfold Road.

In a bid to tackle the problem, Leicester City Council has secured funding from the Department for Transport to trial new traffic measures which will help reduce speeding, rat running and congestion in the area.

The measures are designed to discourage short car journeys, while at the same time making it easier, and safer, to walk and cycle in the area. Residents will still be able to access their homes by car while the restrictions are in place.
