Roadworks and Road Closures

We're responsible for monitoring and co-ordinating road works in Rutland to keep the public safe and reduce congestion and delays on the highways. 

Below you'll find details of all the latest roadworks taking place in Rutland.

You can view more detailed information about these roadworks and future works by visiting the national roadworks.org website.

The interactive roadworks.org map is searchable and shows details about dates, severity of impact, and who is responsible for the works. You can also sign up for emails alerts for road works in your area.
