Public transport users and motorists are being urged to plan their journeys due to the latest partial closure of Armley Gyratory.

As previously reported by WLD, Armley Gyratory will see a partial northbound closure from 8pm today (Friday 22 July) until 5.30am Monday 25 July.

This is to enable deep drainage highways enabling works as part of phase one Armley Gyratory construction. 

Canal Street (from Gloucester Terrace) inbound towards the city centre and along Wellington Road will be fully closed to vehicles. Full local diversion routes will be in place.

Bus services 86 and 87 will divert towards St James’s Hospital from Green Lane, via Tong Road, Whingate, Upper Wortley Road, Dixon Lane, Whitehall Road to Domestic Street omitting Wellington Road

Leeds City Councillor Helen Hayden, executive member for infrastructure and climate, said “We are working hard to keep any disruption to a minimum and we thank everyone for their patience. The closures over the weekend and into next week are necessary to make it safer for the operatives and the public.

“The city remains very much open, and if you normally use these routes we would encourage you to plan ahead and allow extra time for your journeys or follow diversionary routes where you can.”

Further information is available here, including links to diversionary routes away from the gyratory and Neville Street.
