Narborough Road

Closes 24 Jun 2024

Opened 28 May 2024

Overview

Leicester City Council will be carrying out pavement improvement works on Narborough Road (Briton Street to Norman Street - outbound side). The aim of the works is to improve the overall quality of the pavement, make the relevant section more pedestrian-friendly, and tackle any drainage problems. This work will be similar to recent pavement improvements carried out in the area.

There is a tree located in the proposed work area which needs to be removed due to the severity of root damage that has made the pavement unsafe for pedestrians, particularly the elderly and anyone with mobility issues. As we cannot cut radial roots without destabilising the tree, the only option is to remove it to make the pavement safe to use.

We are seeking views on our proposal to remove this tree as part of ongoing improvement works to the area.
