Roadworks in the Centre of Desford

The County Council are planning to install bollards next week at the mini-roundabout and at the Peckleton Lane/High Street/Kirkby Road junction. This should help reduce the number of HGVs travelling through the centre of the village.

However, it is likely that this work will cause significant disruption because LCC are planning to use temporary traffic signals for most of the time on site.

The Parish Council has been asking for these works to be carried out for quite a long time, hence, we hope that you'll be as patient as possible during the construction period. (Which will be about a week or 10 days).
