A new year and new opportunities to spot the remains of our once proud tramway system.
There’s a series of large manholes at the top end of London Road by the junction with Evington Road. The holes run from Highfield Street to Evington Road and are part of a services replacement scheme. They have revealed large sections of the nearside rail on the outward bound track.
The previous day to this there was a hole in the central kerbed area outside Conduit Street further down London Road by the Railway Station. Unfortunately I hadn’t a camera on that day – when I returned today they had filled the hole in already! These guys work quick!
Amazing that sections of track keep resurfacing – there’s a lot of lost Leicester underground! Keep your eyes peeled and keep us posted! Happy searching – who knows, this year we may see a junction somewhere?
