Details Of Major Works
Permanent traffic signals which are being installed on the busiest four of the five approaches to the roundabout next year.
A 50mph speed limit will be introduced in the run-up to the lights.
The carriageway will also be widened in places to increase the number of approach lanes from two to three on the major routes.
The existing footpath will be widened and uncontrolled pedestrian crossing points added.
Other improvements include:
- The existing footpath will be widened and uncontrolled pedestrian crossing points added.
- Resurfacing on the A511 between Junction 22 and the Flying Horse roundabout
- Alterations to the gap in the central reservation at the junction with the cul-de-sac part of Little Shaw Lane
"This is a major investment in improving an already busy junction. The improvements being made over the next six months should greatly ease congestion around the Markfield area, helping road users to avoid delays now and in the future, as Leicestershire continues to grow."
Most of the work will be carried out overnight to avoid lane closures during the day and avoid traffic delays where possible.
Work starts today on a new road linking the M1 to Daventry.
The A45 link road should reduce traffic in villages west of Northampton. It will run for three and half miles, and is expected to cost £32 million.
It's being built as single-carriageway, but designed so that it could be dualled in the future.
"One of the big gains is for the villages for which this road will provide a bypass, as it will bring long-awaited relief to the heavy traffic that has passed through these communities for many years."
