Roadworks at Fosse Park roundabout suspended ahead of Christmas

Asda Roundabout. Fosse Park, EnderbyDaytime work on a £2.7m scheme to relieve congestion and improve safety on one of Leicestershire’s busiest junctions will be suspended over the Christmas period.

As local residents are acutely aware, Leicestershire County Council has been carrying out major restructuring work on the Asda / Fosse Park roundabout.

The work has caused a lot of traffic congestion issues around Enderby, especially at peak times.

Work will be suspended during the day from Friday, November 22 to January 6 for the busy Christmas shopping period.

There will be some overnight work during this time which may result in some lane closures at night. In the day all carriageways will be open.

Narborough Road South access restricted

Ahead of this, work on a new entrance / exit will mean there will be no access this weekend to the nearby Narborough Road South, west service road, (from midnight Friday, November 15 to 5am, Monday, November 18) from the Fosse Park roundabout.

Residents will be able to access the road from the Post House junction – diversions will be clearly signed.

Peter Osborne, Leicestershire County Council cabinet member for highways and transport, said:

“This is an important scheme which will help improve traffic flow and safety at this busy junction.

“We recognise that the during the Christmas period the junction is particularly busy with people accessing Fosse Park, so in order to minimise congestion we will be suspending daytime work during the festive period.

“We’d like to thank motorists and local residents for bearing with us while the scheme is being carried out.”

Work is due to be completed in early spring 2014.
