Ivanhoe College information event

Find out what is happening in your area.

On 6 June 2019, the government announced a consultation on 11 proposed changes to the design of the Phase 2b route. These proposed changes are based on further design development, environmental assessment and consideration of feedback received to recent consultations and ongoing engagement.

At this information event, we will be sharing details of the proposed change in your area.

  • The Secretary of State is minded to realign approximately 13km of the current route by a maximum of 170m to the east between Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Diseworth. This is to reduce impacts associated with crossing former open-cast mines and historic landfills in the area between Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Diseworth.
  • The Secretary of State is minded to introduce a temporary construction railhead near junction 13 of the A42 and the existing Leicester to Burton upon Trent rail line, to support the construction of the new railway.

We hope you will take the opportunity to view and discuss our proposed change with members of the team at this event.

Should this event need to change due to unforeseen circumstances, we will endeavour to inform the local community and other interested parties as soon as possible.

Find out more about the consultation, and how you can have your say.
