Vaughan Way improvement works

As part of my vision to connect Leicester's city centre to its Waterside area, work is about to begin on the creation of a 'super crossing' across Vaughan Way.

Further information

This super crossing will allow pedestrian and cyclists safe access to the Waterside development, including its new shops, housing and Friars Mill complex. It will be similar in scope and scale to the crossing we already have outside Leicester's railway station, and will allow our city centre to grow out past the High Cross. 

Traffic will no longer be able to access Great Central Street, which will instead be transformed with the refurbishment of the old Great Central Station, the building of two new hotels, the creation of 35,000 sq ft of new office space and a new public space.

The highways works on Vaughan Way and Great Central Street are part of a £50m major city centre redevelopment project. Great Central Station has been vacant for almost forty years, and I am looking forward to bringing it back into public use. 

The new super crossing on Vaughan Way will link these improvements to our city centre, connecting Leicester to its Waterside. I am excited for the new opportunities for investment this will bring, as businesses and residents move into the area.
