Armley Gyratory has reopened to traffic earlier than planned – and is now open to all vehicles.

Leeds City Council said that work, which started on Friday evening and was due to finish tomorrow morning (Monday) had been completed ahead of schedule.

A spokesperson added:

“We would like to thank people for their patience and apologise for any disruption.”

Ongoing gyratory road works will continue, and users will see narrower lanes, 30mph speed limits for safety and other traffic management in place.

Bus services will continue with their diversions until 6am tomorrow (Monday, April 11).

This will be the first of two phases of work which will include widening roads, replacing footbridges and better signalling on the gyratory by 2023.

The improvements are designed to increase capacity on the Leeds Inner Ring Road and M621 and reduce city centre through-traffic, said the West Yorkshire Combined Authority.

The junction is normally used by about 100,000 vehicles a day.
