We Are Connected

We have completed a new £15m bridge across the M1 Motorway extending Meridian Way into New Lubbesthorpe, providing a direct connection to the city’s ring road.

Our new entrance onto Beggars Lane is the eastern gateway to our Phase One development area.

To reflect the commitment of Drummond Estate to sustainability , local transport consultancy Go Travel Solutions was appointed in  April 2018 as Travel Plan Coordinator for the development. They help residents with all of their travel needs, offering advice, discounts on sustainable travel choices, e-bike trials and help with public transport, car sharing and electric vehicles.

Our network of footpath and cycle ways (and bridleways) connect New Lubbesthorpe into the wider networks and make the countryside just as accessible as the city.

We will also deliver a new bridge connecting across the M69 in the south, via the Strategic Employment site, to Leicester Lane and St Johns, and on to the Soar Valley Way ring road in the south.
