Report from Eurovia on works at Discovery Way, Resolution Road Layby and Tesco Roundabout

Works are continuing for the construction of the new lane 1 and layby on Resolution Road approaching Pladis McVities site. To date we have excavated the new lane 1, diverted the utility services in the area and installed new drainage gullies. A new kerb line has been installed and the sub base of Type 1 stone has been applied in readiness for the laying of the new surface.

Next week traffic management will be implemented on Discovery Way and the Nottingham Road (Tesco) Roundabout. Grass seed planting will take place in the area. The surfacing of Resolution Road will be carried out on Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th March and the 3-way traffic light signals will remain in place.

Cleaning grafitti from the bus shelter

While the roadworks have caused us all some disruption Eurovia Contracting have provided Coleorton with some help with projects around the parish. They made some of their equipment and manpower available to help clean the grafitti from the bus shelter on the Ashby Road and cleaned the play surface at the Peggs Green Rec with their mobile jet washer and painted the goal posts. Thank you.
