ADVANCED NOTICE OF WORKS

Road Closure Church Street Billesdon

Highway Drainage / Flood Alleviation Billesdon

I write to inform you of forthcoming drainage works on Church Street. Weather permitting, the works will commence on Monday February 17th and will last for up to 17weeks.

This essential maintenance is to replace collapsed and damaged drains with a new system better able to convey water run off alleviating flooding caused by severe weather events. More »

A Road Closure will be in place for the duration of the work between the junction with BrookLane, and the junction with Leicester Road/Uppingham Road. A signposted diversion will be in place directing traffic around the closure.

For the duration of our works access will be severely limited at times to land and property within the road closure. Access will be from either the junction with Brook Lane or the junction with Leicester Road switching as the works moves up the road in controlled phases.

It is important that whilst work takes place that where possible the diversion route is observed. When we are working directly over your access we will endeavour to get you through as soon as it is safe to do so.

During construction you must exercise extra caution when using the road, be aware of ramps, reduce your speed, observe temporary road signs and do not enter areas where construction work is taking place unless escorted by a member of our team.

For enquiries relating to construction, safety, access and day to day phasing of the programme please contact our Principal Contractor rep. David Briars on the details above. For questions relating to design please mark correspondence for my own attention.

Whilst the work is being carried out some noise and inconvenience will be unavoidable. Leicestershire County Council apologises for any nuisance that might be caused and efforts will be made to minimise this.

Yours Faithfully
