  1. Traffic nightmare down Leeds/Bradford road yesterday 16th November at 8am.Had a 9.15am appointment at St James but only just made it.Usually takes 15 to 20mins to get there not 1 hour 15 minx. Hope its not going to be like this all the time,not just for me but people getting to work.Very bad planning

  2. The traffic situation is ridiculous, I struggle every day to get to work in Leeds, stuck in traffic on Leeds Bradford road every day for 15 to 20 mins!!! This will get worse, never had a problem in the last 6 years until now!
