The next phase of works to improve the B4114/Leicester Lane junction and construct a new access junction on Leicester Lane, Enderby will begin in January 2017.
As part of the works, the following restrictions will be in place:
– Two way traffic lights on Leicester Lane from 3rd January 2017 until April 2017.
– Closure of the right turn from B4114 St Johns southbound to Leicester Lane from 16th January 2017 until April 2017. (See below)
– Lane closures on the B4114 northbound and southbound from 16th January 2017 until April 2017.
Road users are advised to allow extra time for their journey or use an alternative route if travelling in the area.
As part of the ongoing works on Leicester Lane, Enderby, there will be temporary traffic lights on Leicester Lane from 7am on Tuesday 29th November until 5pm on Wednesday 30th November.
The temporary traffic lights will be located on the Enderby side of the M1 and are required in order to undertake ditch works to help alleviate flooding issues on Leicester Lane. (See map at the base of this article)
If you are travelling during this period, please allow extra time for your journey or use an alternative route.
From Monday 28th November, the current lane restrictions on the B4114 will be removed until early January 2017.
This will mean that all lanes on the B4114 will be open to help the road network cope with the increased traffic volumes over the Christmas period.
During this period, the left turn lane from the B4114 northbound to Leicester Lane will remain closed and the existing diversion route, via Everards roundabout, will remain in place.

Just prior to rush hour this morning (Monday 17th August) a burst water pipe in the vicinity of Leicester Lane heading towards the Foxhunter Island caused flooding at the top end of the B4114 St John’s.
About 30 people in the LE8 and LE19 postcodes were reported to have been without any water supply.
Enderby Leisure Centre sent out text messages to members saying they hoped to be able to stay open during the day.
Severn Trent Water quickly had teams at the scene.
Leicester Lane, between Smith Way and the B4114 Narborough Road was closed off. This area covers the entrance to the Enderby Park and Ride but during the course of the morning buses were being allowed along the road. A diversion was set up via the Foxhunter Roundabout.
At 09.30am Severn Trent Water were saying the water supply had been restored to all homes affected by the morning’s burst main.
The firm said it had managed to use other pipes in the area to re-supply customers, although they may have experienced some low pressure.
Repairs were expected to continue into the evening.
