Mapped: Taxi protest to cause Monday traffic disruption in Leeds

A ‘go slow’ taxi protest starting at Kirkstall Morrisons could lead to rush hour traffic chaos tomorrow (Monday).

A convoy of around 100 slow-moving taxis will start at Kirkstall Morrisons at 6am and will go down Kirkstall Road and into the city centre.

A statement on Metro’s website said the protest would likely last for four hours until until 10am:

“There is likely to be traffic congestion due to this protest.”

 

Taxi drivers say missiles are being hurled at them on a daily basis. They’re also angry about an increased number of £70 fines being imposed for picking up and dropping off in areas with bus stop markings in Leeds city centre.

This is the route of the protest:

  • Commercial Road
  • Kirkstall Road
  • Wellington Street
  • King Street
  • East Parade (Leeds Loop)
  • Calverley Street
  • Portland Way
  • Woodhouse Lane
  • Merrion Street (Leeds Loop)
  • New Briggate (Leeds Loop)
  • New York Road (Leeds Loop)
  • Eastgate (Leeds Loop)
  • St Peter’s Street (Leeds Loop)
  • Duke Street (Leeds Loop)
  • Kirkgate (Leeds Loop)
  • High Court (Leeds Loop)
  • The Calls (Leeds Loop)
  • Swinegate (Leeds Loop)
  • Bishopsgate Street (Leeds Loop)
  • City Square (Leeds Loop)
  • Wellington Street

  1. They are probably unhappy at the swarms of Bradford, Rossendale, Kirkless and Calderdale registered Uber cabs which descend on Leeds every evening.

    Took me ages to see a Leeds registered Uber last night, almost all of them were from out of town and I doubt hundreds of people are paying Uber prices to travel to Leeds from towns and cities 10-20 miles away.
