Road repairs are being carried out over the half-term holidays on a busy Leicester street.

Leicester City Council is carrying out the work at Victoria Road East, in the city’s Troon and North Evington wards.

The work covers the section from Cordelia Close up to and including the Hastings Road junction. It begins on Saturday, February 17, for seven days. It will cost around £138,000 and covers 3,671 square metres.

A full road closure will be in place, along with some local parking restrictions.

Leicester deputy city mayor for climate, economy and culture, Cllr Adam Clarke, said: “The work is part of this financial year’s annual £4m highways maintenance capital programme. Ongoing maintenance is part of the work needed to keep the city’s roads in good condition.

“These works are taking place during the school holidays when there is less traffic on the roads, and a local diversion will be in place to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.”
