Closure of Oaks Road, Great Glen
Leicestershire County Council Highways Department has provided the following information -
The developer, Miller homes, had been operating under COVID 19 restrictions and as such the site has only recently become active. The revised programme should now see the works competed by mid-August.
Whilst it may appear that clearing the materials within the closure would allow the road to be open, there is an open excavation running from the site entrance to the connection point in the middle of the road and so there is not the required road width available to safely reopen the road. Miller Homes have a legal order in place that will continue to cover this site for the duration of the works, and their road space permit has been formally extended to cover the works taking place on the carriageway.
Should anyone wish to discuss the provision or reinstatement of a pedestrian route adjacent to the site, please contact Miller homes direct on 0800 954 8424.
