***** UPDATE *****  Closure of Broughton/Cosby Crossroads, Broughton Astley (HARB0585/2019)

As you may be aware, I have been in discussion with Leicestershire County Council regarding the ridiculous diversion they have proposed during the closure of the Cosby Crossings, on The Bull pub side, next week.  It has now been agreed that there will be a local diversion signed in Broughton Astley that will direct traffic through Broughton rather than through Frolesworth.  The caveat to this is that they will also have signage in place to divert non-local traffic on the route through Frolesworth.  I don’t believe I can achieve any further improvement on this situation and my hope is that, with the local diversion in place very little additional traffic will take the Frolesworth route.
