New 20mph zone soon to be placed around residential streets around a city school

By Shantelle Gondo

New speed restrictions are due to be introduced in streets around a city school in Leicester.

The 20mph zone will be introduced in the roads to the west of Ashton Green Road, near Glebelands Primary School.

This speed restriction is one of the newest measures which has been brought into Leicester City Council’s new road safety scheme.

Work will cost around £6,000, which will be funded by the council’s Transport Improvement Works budget.

The Glebelands scheme will also include:

  • Hogarth Road
  • Rowlandson Close
  • Lawrence Close
  • Hoppner Close
  • Bevan Road
  • Monks Crescent and many other roads around the same area.
