The £19.1M Leicester North West Major Transport
Transport Project (LNWMTP)
scheme consists of a wedge broadly around the transport corridors of the
A50 Groby Road and the A6 Loughborough Road.
Roads and junctions along the A50 corridor, between the A46 Western
Bypass and the A563 outer ring road, will be improved and made safer with
ditional or wider lanes, new signalling, better pedestrian and cycle
crossings, and additional cycle facilities.
The project is being run jointly between Leicester City Council and
Leicestershire County Council, with the vast majority of the funding being provided from Central Government
through the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) Local Growth Fund.
It is being done to improve journey times and reduce congestion, while also improving safety and sustainable
travel choices along the route.
Leicester City Mayor Peter Soulsby said: “Over the coming years the road network connecting the city to the
north west of Leicestershire is going to play an increasingly important role for the growing number of
businesses and homes proposed for that
at area.
