A 'Temporary Traffic Regulation Order' has been issued for 5 days commencing on Sunday 26th July to allow from the crossing on Whitwick Market Place to be created.
Councillor Leon Spence, County Councillor for Whitwick, said 'A lot of people have been asking for this crossing for a long time. It will be great to see it built, it will make the Market Place considerably safer.
Councillor Spence said 'There will be a few days of inconvenience and it's important that local residents are aware of this but the result will be well worth the wait.'
