Belgrave flyover demolition expected to cause disruption

Demolition of the Belgrave flyover in Leicester is expected to cause disruption as the planned start date draws closer.

Demolition contractors will be carrying out the work on the flyover, which will be in the form of either a nine week project, involving two one-week road closures, or a 14 week project, keeping roads fully open at peak times.

The flyover will be closed to traffic from 1 February, with work expected to begin on 15 February for both options. However, the project end date will be effected by the method chosen, with a 14 week demolition project ending in May rather than April.

Two full weekend road closures will also take place during the demolition to allow contractors to take down the sections of the flyover running directly above the roundabout.

Further work, including road improvements and the creation of 78 new parking spaces, is then expected to continue until October 2014, and will be complete in time for Belgrave's Diwali celebrations.

Residents fear that the work will lead to huge delays and noise disruption in the local area. In response to these concerns, the Belgrave Neighbourhood Centre hosted a question-and-answer session to discuss the demolition project and how it will affect the local area.
