Plans for a new £10m bridge over the M1 in Leicestershire are being shown to the public.

The bridge will connect Meridian Way to a new 4,250 home development in Lubbesthorpe.

The county council said construction work had already begun and the bridge was expected to be completed by August next year.

People can find out more information at an event, on Monday at Leicester Forest East or at Thorpe Astley on Wednesday.
