Leicestershire County Council have announced a temporary road closure as work continues on the North and East Melton Mowbray Distributor Road.

A County Council spokesperson said: "The closure will be in place so a new drainage network can be installed as part of a new roundabout construction. All diversion routes – via the A607 to the A1 - will be clearly signposted. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during the work."

Construction of the north and east parts of Melton’s distributor road started in May last year, the 7km road will relieve traffic congestion in the town centre and unlock land for new housing.
