West Leeds: Consultation events give say on traffic measures

West Leeds residents are being urged to attend consultation events starting tomorrow to feed back on latest plans to reduce traffic congestion.

As revealed by the Dispatch last week, Leeds City Council has set a target of doubling the current 250,000 bus trips made in the city per day within 10 years and is wanting to hear people’s views on plans to introduce new infrastructure, including bus priority measures.

There are six main stretches of road in West Leeds earmarked for improvements as part of the Connecting Leeds scheme.

These include: Bradford Road, between Gain Lane and Ederoyd Grove; Dawsons Corner Junction; Stanningley Road junction with Hough Lane; Stanningley Road, between Bramley Town End and Armley Ridge Road; Armley Road between Ledgard Way and Pickering Street; and Armley Road and Canal Street.

The aim is to reduce bus journey times between Leeds and Bradford by at least 15 minutes.

Consultation events for people to attend will be held on Stanningley Road, in Armley and in Pudsey over the next few weeks. They are:

Thursday 15 November: St John’s Methodist Church, Stanningley Road, anytime between 5pm-8pm.

Saturday 17 November: Wesley Road Chapel, Armley, anytime between 10.30am-2pm.

Monday 26 November: Pudsey Civic Hall, Pudsey, anytime between 5pm-8pm.

You can also have your say on the proposals online.
