Temporary Road Closure of Wigston Road


Leicestershire County Council in exercise of its powers under Section 14 (2) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, hereby gives Notice that the road detailed in the schedule below is closed.

Temporary Road Closure of Wigston Road, Oadby from the junction of Shenley Road, to the junction of The Oval for up to 21 days. The actual duration of the closure is not anticipated to exceed a period of 5 days and it is expected that this road will be open to traffic on Saturday 22 October 2017.

The Temporary Traffic Regulation Order is being implemented to safely allow Severn Trent to repair an emergency burst water main and related consequential damages caused to the highway.

As the ground is saturated with water there may be periods of time when operatives are not working onsite whilst this dries. Leicestershire County Council are working closely with Severn Trent Water to ensure all damages are repaired in the first instance, this will avoid prolonged disruption to motorist and pedestrians.

The alternative diversion route for users will be via:- Leicester Road (Wigston A5199), Palmerston Way (Leicester City A563), Leicester Road, Harborough Road (A6), New Street, London Road, Wigston Road (Oadby) and vice versa.

Leicestershire County Council apologises for any inconvenience caused during these works.
