A6006 Melton Road - East Leake, Rempstone & Stanford on Soar - Proposed 40mph Speed Limit

Closed 24 Feb 2021

Opened 1 Feb 2021


The proposed speed limit would help reduce the speed of traffic on the A6006 through the junctions with Leake Lane, Loughborough Road, the entrance to Home Farm and the existing entrance to the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre. An additional new entrance is planned into the Centre and is expected to increase the number of vehicles turning off and onto the A6006. The speed limit on this length of road is currently 50mph and the lower traffic speeds will give more time for drivers to react to turning vehicles.
