Ashby Road, Coalville - highway improvements

We want to hear your views on proposals to improve the highway/street scene on Ashby Road, Coalville from its junction with Ravenstone Road to the junction of Knighton Close. 

This consultation is now closed.

The scheme consists of the following improvements:

  • removal of all three of the priority narrowings
  • removal of 13 of the sheltered parking/traffic calming buildouts
  • creation of 16 on-street parking spaces, whilst removing 3
  • extending the existing advisory school 20mph zone
  • creation of two new uncontrolled crossing points
  • improvements to four of the existing uncontrolled crossing points
  • removal of unnecessary street furniture e.g. guard railing
  • replacement of existing illuminated bollards with reflective bollards
  • address existing road surface maintenance issues making vehicular accesses at the main entrance to the Snibston Country Park and ASDA/BP Petrol Station safer for all users.

The scheme would cost £250K, jointly funded by Leicestershire County Council and North West Leicestershire District Council.
