Have your say on highways restrictions proposed for Stanningley Road bus scheme

Rersidents and motorists can have their say on a series of new parking and highways restrictions in Armley as part of £16 million scheme to improve roads between Leeds and Bradford.

Leeds City Council is proposing a number of traffic orders as part of the Stanningley Road bus priority scheme, which aims to improve public transport access into Leeds city centre on the A647.

Work is set to include replacing current high occupancy vehicle lanes on Stanningley Road with extended bus lanes and further bus priority measures at traffic signals.

It is also set to include improvements to the Armley Road/Ledgard Way
junction and Pickering Street, reducing ‘delays to general traffic and improving safety for all users’, as well as ‘segregated lanes to complement the Leeds Bradford cycle superhighway’. Plans also include the removal of the high occupancy vehicle lane down Stanningley Road.

  1. Leeds City Council should have sorted the bus lane on Armley Road when they put the cycle lane in. Unfortunately they don’t seem to think ahead. They spend a fortune doing City centre alterations while the rural towns are being ignored. The roads around Pudsey are a disgrace, try cycling down Waterloo Rd. Also Stanningley bypass needs most attention. The council can not leave it much longer, the surface is worn-out. When riding a motorcycle along the bypass you can be thrown off your seat going over all the patches. Even in a car you bounce over the bumps.
