Leicestershire County Council Highways has agreed to an accident
reduction scheme to be put in place at the ‘notorious’ Foxhunter Roundabout.

In order to improve road safety at this location, the Blaby Road access with
the Foxhunter roundabout will be fully signalled and will no longer operate
as a give-way arm.

Enderby Parish Council have long identified the current give-way arm, coupled with the location of the pedestrian crossing, as a potential hazard.

The works will involve moving the existing toucan signal crossing closer to
the roundabout; installing a safety traffic island to locate a signal head
within the City bound side of the roundabout; and other associated works
including signing and lining alterations to compliment the new layout.

The works are anticipated to commence on 16th July, 2018 and are
expected to last 3 to 4 weeks.

Leicestershire County Council apologises for any inconvenience caused
during these works.
