Posted by bv39 at Jan 30, 2020 08:54 AM |
As part of Connecting Leicester programme, the next phase of works will commence on Sunday 2 February and will take around 12 weeks to complete.

The next phase of the work will be:

  • Extending the existing segregated two-way cycle lane along the east side of Lancaster Road (between University Road and Tigers Way) up to the junction of Tigers Way
  • Make the north section of Lancaster Road between Tigers Way and the multi-storey car park a one way direction towards Tigers Way
  • Alterations to the Tigers Way/Lancaster Road junction to introduce a parallel crossing
  • Prohibit the right/left turn into Lancaster Road for general traffic

What this means for you:

  • The works will commence on Lancaster Road between the multi-storey car park and junction with Tigers Way. The road will be fully closed to vehicular traffic along this length for six weeks
  • Works will also be carried out on the Tigers Way outbound footway around the Tigers Way/Lancaster Road junction. The option to turn right into Lancaster Way from Tigers way will not be possible. This work will be carried out under off-peak lane closures.
  • During this time, the existing pedestrian crossing will be suspended. A temporary controlled crossing installed across Tigers Way will be accessible across Tigers Way to maintain pedestrian access to Lancaster Road.
  • On completion of this section, further improvements will take place on Lancaster Road at the junction of Tigers Way along with alterations to the central reservation, which will mainly be carried out during evening working
  • The evening works will involve road closures on the inbound side of Tigers Way between the junction of Welford Road and Regent Road. This will take place from 7pm - 6am during the week from mid-March to the end of April
  • Fully signed diversion routes will be in place for both the closures on Lancaster Road and the evening closure on Tigers Way

These works are being carried out by The Leicester City Council as part of the Lancaster Road cycle scheme.
