Planned roadworks are likely to have a significant impact on staff, patients and visitors travelling to Melton Mowbray Hospital.

Between Monday 04 March and Friday 15 March, 2024, a section of Thorpe Road in Melton will be closed 24 hours a day for work in connection with a housing development.

Thorpe Road will be closed between the B676 Saxby Road/A607 Norman Way and Stafford Avenue.

The section of Thorpe Road between Stafford Avenue and Melton Spinney Road will remain open. This includes the section at Dee Close – the main entrance to Melton Mowbray Hospital – and the hospital will be accessible at all times.

However, traffic coming from the centre of Melton will have to use a diversion through residential roads to reach the hospital. This will involve travelling on A607 Norman Way, King’s Road, Limes Avenue, Salisbury Avenue, Belvoir Street, Thorpe Road and Dee Close.

Heading away from the hospital, traffic will need to exit Dee Close on to Thorpe Road, then use Stafford Avenue, Algernon Road, King’s Road and back on to A607 Norman Way.

Travellers should allow extra time for their journeys.
