WEEKEND ROAD CLOSURES - Ibstock Road, Ellistown/Leicester Road, Ibstock
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING INFO FROM LCC REGARDING THE ROAD CLOSURES AND POSSIBLE ISSUES WITH ANOTHER ROAD CLOSURE IN IBSTOCK RUNNING AT THE SAME TIME:
As you are aware there are planned works to undertake carriageway maintenance on Ibstock Road/Leicester Road in Ellistown between Richmond Road and Millennium Green for the next two weekends under a full closure.
On Monday 19th October 2020 a road closure commenced on Chapel Street in Ibstock for Severn Trent Water to undertake a sewer repair, this was planned to be completed by tomorrow (Friday 23rd October). Severn Trent Water have informed us that due to unforeseen engineering difficulties these works are not going to be completed by Friday, therefore this weekend 24-25 October, Chapel Street in Ibstock and Ibstock Road/Leicester Road in Ellistown will be closed at the same time.
We have exhausted all options with Severn Trent Water to get Chapel Street opened for the weekend, but due to the excavation location and size temporary backfill and reinstatement or utilising road plates are not viable. Severn Trent Water are working to get this completed ASAP but is likely to be in place until Wednesday 28th October 2020 at the earliest.
The works on Ibstock Road/Leicester Road had been planned to be take place in May but due to local business concerns these were postponed and rescheduled as this was just as COVID lockdown restrictions had been relaxed. Unfortunately this activity needs to be completed.
