Passenger transport is changing in Leicestershire and, at the same time the County Council is facing significant financial challenges, they are also trying to offer a better service to residents.
The County Council has developed a new Passenger Transport Policy and Strategy, to ensure its passenger transport provision is fit for purpose and cost effective.
The review of Service 27 (Loughborough to Thurmaston) is now complete and the intended course of action is to amend the timetable and reduce the length of the route, with the new route operating between Loughborough and Sileby.

The following roads in Syston have surface dressing works programmed for this summer period, some may have already been completed.
Goodes Lane, Pembroke Avenue, Quenby Crescent – early August.
Surface dressing is a preventative maintenance treatment that seals the road surface, extends the life of the road, reduces the occurrence of potholes and increases skid resistance by laying chippings on a bitumen "glue" and then rolling them into the surface. Excess chippings are swept up and then compacted further by vehicular traffic. Road markings are replaced afterwards. More »
The works are quick moving and, dependent upon the road length numerous sites can be completed in a day. The scheduling of the visit will depend upon the size of stone being used, and it may be necessary to visit your town at the beginning and end of the season.
The treatment is weather dependant, and whilst we will try to work to a programme some slippage will be expected for wet weather, and some roads may have to be reprogrammed for either later this year or for next year. Residents of roads affected in Syston will receive the attached leaflet one working day prior to the works so that arrangements can be made to move any vehicles.
