We will soon be carrying out important maintenance works on New Parks Way. These will include a closure and diversions through Braunstone and Rowley Fields, Western, Fosse and Beaumont Leys.

Further information

The works are being carried out during the school break, when there is 15-20% less traffic using the route.

Well-signposted diversions will be in place, along with electronic information signs warning motorists of the work and giving details of alternative routes.
