Kegworth Bypass, New Road Layout & Information

We have been made aware by a number of residents that vehicles are breaching the 'bus gate' at the top of Ashby Road.

Leicestershire County Council, Highways have been informed. They will hopefully consider whether any monitoring needs to be put in place and thereafter, whether any alterations should be made. If you wish to address the issues you are experiencing and witnessing with County Highways directly, please email them to

In addition, we are aware that some HGVs are still coming through the centre of the village. Realistically, it would be impossible to eradicate lorries completely however we are pleased to confirm that numbers of HGVs have dropped considerably. This is evidenced by regular traffic counts which are currently being carried out by the Chairman of the Parish Council.

County Highways advise that it can take up to six months for a new road layout to settle in. After this time, if HGVs continue to breach the 7.5 tonne weight restriction, we will look to carry out monitoring by noting down registration numbers, the date and time of the breach and also the company name of the lorry. We will then contact the businesses directly to advise them. If at the time, you are willing to volunteer to carry out this recording, please contact me here.

Vicky Roe, Parish Clerk
