Roads and sustainable travel

Due to high demand, the deadline for bulky waste collections at 3pm today has been brought forward to 1pm. Any collections booked after will now be collected on Saturday August 24 and not Monday August 19. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Leicestershire County Council is responsible for most transport and highways matters.

We have the following involvement:

  • We work closely on public transport issues through various partnerships and projects
  • We manage several public car parks in Loughborough, as well as some smaller towns and villages
  • We contribute to concessionary travel for elderly and disabled people
  • We are responsible for some bus shelters in Loughborough
  • We are responsible for street cleansing and street name-plates throughout the borough

Midland main line improvement programme

Network Rail has embarked on a major programme of works to upgrade the Midland Main Line (MML) - the biggest programme of improvements to the line since it was completed in 1870.

Charnwood road safety committee

Charnwood Road Safety Committee (incorporating Home Safety) consists of a group made up of representatives of Charnwood Parish Councils, Borough Councillors and the police. Its remit is to investigate road safety concerns in the borough and, if necessary, liaise with the Highway Authority to bring about improvements.

The committee meets four times a year at Southfields, Loughborough.
