They’re going to fix the Gas Mains near Royal Hotel in Ashby
For 6 weeks from next Saturday 24th March, the red bit on the map – Station Road and Tamworth Road (just from Avenue Road) – will be ONE-WAY INTO ASHBY ONLY, so we won’t be able to drive to Lower Packington Road from Ashby Market Street. The green bit on the map – last bit of Lower Packington Road – will be ONE-WAY OUT OF ASHBY ONLY.
Most of us will choose to drive home up Market Street and turn right at the traffic lights into Old Leicester Road, then turn right down Upper Packington Road back to our village.
The 6 weeks ends on 4th May 2018. Here’s the official notice:
