Schemes marked as ‘reserve’ may be designed and consulted on this year but may not be constructed until later.

National Productivity Investment Fund Award

Leicestershire County Council has been awarded £2.67 million as part of the Government’s National Productivity Investment Fund. This funding boost will help finance the following:

  • A511/Discovery Way and A511/Nottingham Road, Ashby-de-la-Zouch junction improvements (£1.7m)
  • Ratby Lane/Wembley Road junction improvement, Leicester Forest East (£0.6m)
  • Snibston Redevelopment cycle link, Coalville (£0.34m)

Detailed schemes are being developed for each of the locations, but a key purpose of each is:

  • To help to support future growth;
  • To improve conditions for all road users;
  • To help to reduce traffic congestion.

As appropriate, consultations and/or further information will be provided about each scheme prior to construction. The intention is for all of these schemes to be delivered by March 2018.



This information is not definitive and we cannot guarantee it is a complete and up to date list of all County Council schemes.
