Ashby Road 'Bus Gate' Concerns - Update

Ashby Road 'Bus Gate' Concerns - Update

Posted: Mon, 17 Dec 2018 09:09 by Vicky Roe

Since the opening of the 'bus gate' at Ashby Road, the Parish Council has received many complaints and enquiries from residents. Therefore, these concerns were passed on to Leicestershire County Council. More »

I have heard from LCC to say that they have been inundated with enquiries and unfortunately, due to the way the restrictions have been implemented through the Development Consent Order made at Secretary of State level, I am informed that LCC have limited scope to make alterations at present, which they have been trying to overcome. LCC believe however, that they now have a solution and before they can advise further, need to ensure they can legally carry out the changes as required.

LCC have also been in discussions with the Police to ascertain what they can feasibly do to stop people driving through the red light at the bus gate.

As soon as this is ratified, LCC will provide the Parish Council with a statement and will then respond to the enquiries received.

If you wish to address the issues you are experiencing and witnessing with County Highways directly, please email them to highwayscustomerservices@leics.gov.uk
