M1 junction 23 and A512 improvement scheme

Improvements to A512 and M1 Junction 23 are now under way. Due to take eighteen months to complete, the second stage of the project will include improvements to support future development and traffic growth between Loughborough and Shepshed.

To stay in line with Construction leadership Council (CLC) Site Operating Procedures for COVID-19 we have suspended work on the Leicester Road junction until further notice. We will continue to carry out earthwork, drainage and ducting work on the M1 J23 East and West areas of the project.

For further updates on the scheme subscribe to the newsletter by emailing: A512improvements@morgansindall.com

The scheme which is being funded by developers with an additional £5 million from Highways England and £12 million from the Leicester, Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership Limited (LLEP) involves: 

  • improvements to three junctions along the A512 near Shepshed
  • improvements to the M1 Junction 23; and
  • upgrading the single carriageway to dual carriageway between Junction 23 and Snells Nook Lane, Loughborough

Bus stop changes

From Monday 15 June a bus stop will be temporarily moving as part of planned works. 

  • The bus stop on the A512, opposite Ingleberry Road, will move to Leicester Road, at the Holt Rise junction.Opens new window
