Essential weekend work linked to the North and East Melton Mowbray distributor road (NEMMDR) gets underway later this month with the temporary closures of the A606 Nottingham Road and St Bartholomew’s Way.

The Nottingham Road closure will be on the weekend of 23 and 24 March with the road scheduled to re-open on the Sunday evening (24th) with St Bartholomew’s Way remaining closed until Thursday, 28th March

Unfortunately, some disruption is unavoidable because of the closures and the council apologises in advance for any inconvenience caused, although it is hoped that a weekend closure of Nottingham Road will minimise delays.

The road closure is required to carry out essential drainage work and to divert utilities linked to the building of the distributor road.

During the closures, there will be no pedestrian access on Nottingham Road into St Bartholomew’s Way and there will be a signed diversion along the footpath on Winchester Drive and Canterbury Drive.

The council says it may also be necessary to complete any outstanding work on St Bartholomew’s Way between Tuesday, 2nd April and Friday, 5th April, but this will be confirmed nearer the time.

We are constructing a major road scheme which will reduce congestion and support growth in the local area, and unfortunately at times, some disruption on existing roads is unavoidable.

We do work hard however to minimise disruption on the road network where this occurs and the work will be carried out towards the start of the Easter school holidays.
