Road improvement plans go on show
The A453
The proposed road would be eight lanes wide in some places
People are being invited to have their say on plans to widen a road between Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.

The Highways Agency wants to carry out improvement work on the A453 between junction 24 of the M1 and the A52 in Clifton, Nottinghamshire.

Plans include creating a two-lane dual carriageway between junction 24 and Barton in Fabis, with the road being widened to four lanes around Clifton.

Displays of the plans will go on show in Kegworth and Clifton from Wednesday.

Highways officials said the new plans would improve safety and accessibility on the road, which is notorious as a congestion black spot.

New link roads and improved junctions are also proposed as part of the scheme, which is expected to be completed by 2012.
