Busy Swinnow Road is set to close for five weeks throughout the summer to allow for major carriageway reconstruction works to be carried out.
The closure – for 24 hours a day between 23rd July to 31st August 2018 – will mean disruption to a number of buses in the area, as well as inevitable traffic delays. The road will close between Intake Road and Swinnow Lane.
In order to ensure there is a bus service serving the area during the works, a free shuttle bus operated by Fourway Coaches will run between Pudsey Bus Station and Swinnow.
Cllr Richard Lewis (Lab, Pudsey) said:
“I have been talking to Metro and have explained the big impact these works are going to have in the area, so there will be a 15-minute free shuttle bus between Swinnow and Pudsey Bus Station.
“It will be frequent enough to make sure people aren’t too inconvenienced. There will inevitably be some delays but I hope this will help ease some of the pain.”
During the closure bus services 4 9 9A 11 11E will be diverted via Pudsey Road and Hough Side Road, the 14 via Stanningley Road and Richardshaw Lane, the x11 and x14 via Stanningley Bypass and Richardshaw Lane.
