Today’s consultation event on proposals for new pathways and a footbridge over the A6120 Outer Ring Road to link Calverley and Farsley has been cancelled.
Due to the Met Office red weather warning that is in force today (Monday, 18 July 2022) Leeds City Council has taken the decision to reschedule the planned consultation event due to take place today at Farsley Community Church from 2pm to 7pm.
This has been rescheduled to Monday, 5 September, from 2pm-7pm. People can also have their say as part of the online consultation here.
A council spokesperson said:
“The decision has been taken as there is a clear safety risk. The weather warning states: population-wide adverse health effects experienced, not limited to those most vulnerable to extreme heat, leading to serious illness or danger to life. The advice is not to travel by train or car unless absolutely essential, as there could be last minute delays, cancellations to services and issues on the roads.”
Leeds City Council’s plans form part of the second phase of the £23 million Connecting West Leeds scheme, which last year received government ‘levelling up’ funding to improve car, walking and cycling travel along the Outer Ring Road.
