Castle Donington’s new relief road opens

A new relief road in Castle Donington, designed to ease congestion, is now open for use.

The relief road will give quicker access to residential and business areas which are currently being developed, including Redrow Homes’ Foxbridge Manor off Park Lane.

The relief road project is part of a £7.76 million investment into the Castle Donington area given jointly by Redrow Homes and Miller Homes.

The investment includes over £1.5m towards new bus services, bus stops and passes, alongside a £330,000 commitment to improving traffic calming measures. This is in addition to a healthcare investment of £400,000 to expand Castle Donington Surgery.

Redrow Homes has also made a contribution of £30,000 towards improvements to a neighbourhood play facility near the new development.

The housebuilders investment includes £4.25 million towards education, including its contribution to a brand new primary school, which opens September 2021.

Mary Timlin, Sales Director of Redrow Homes East Midlands, said: “We are glad to announce that the new relief road is open for public use. This will decrease commuter’s journey time, and allow easier access to the town’s newest residential areas, including Foxbridge Manor.

“Our aim is not just to create beautiful homes but also thriving communities to live in them. This relief road, as well as the new primary school, will help local people and businesses long-term.

“We are thrilled to be supporting the community of Castle Donington and ensuring the sustainability of our latest development in the town, while building much-needed homes in the region.”
