Coalville Growth Corridor

Growth Area 3 – Coalville Growth Corridor

The A511 corridor, between Ashby, Coalville and Bardon, is one of two key east-west links in Leicestershire. It links the A42 to the M1 at Junction 22. With appropriate interventions, improvements along the A511 corridor can unlock significant housing and commercial developments. This will enable the construction of 5,275 houses and 25 hectares of employment development that have been planned, but remain constrained by poor transport infrastructure.

The logistics sector is also vitally important for this location and infrastructure improvements will be essential to ensure the corridor continues to provide the easy accessibility from key sites to the motorway network that the sector requires.
