Consultation on Access Bridge over M1
LATEST: The timescale for the residents consultation on the construction of the access bridge over the M1 between Thorpe Astley and Lubbesthorpe is likely to be known in a couple of weeks. Braunstone Town Council will keep residents informed. The consultation will be in the form of an exhibition and is likely to take place at Thorpe Astley Community Centre. The County Council, District Council and developer are currently finalising legal agreements, once this is completed a timetable for the construction can be confirmed. Construction will not commence until after the public exhibition has been held and the construction is expected to take around 18 months to complete.
Did you walk along the footpath between Watergate Lane and Staplehurst Avenue prior to flood alleviation works in 2013?
During the flood alleviation works in June 2013, access to the footpath between Watergate Lane and Staplehurst Avenue was closed and since then the landowner has kept the footpath gate locked.
If you regularly used this route we need your help so we can provide enough evidence of its use to reopen the route for future use by the community.
