Road resurfacing will lead to the closure of A6120 Broadway in Horsforth from Friday, 14 July to Monday, 17 July 2023, highways chiefs have said.

Following the completion of the first of phase of resurfacing works between Horsforth roundabout and the Fink Hill junction earlier this month, the second phase of resurfacing will take place at Fink Hill and Parkside junctions.

From 8pm Friday 14 July to 6am Monday 17 July, the A6120 Broadway between Rose Terrace and Horsforth roundabout will close to traffic in both directions. Footpaths will remain open.

This is the second of three planned weekend closures between July and September to allow for carriageway resurfacing to be completed quickly and with the least possible disruption.

Traffic management will be in place with a diversion and signage for road users to follow:

Leeds City Council has issued details of a diversion while works are carried out

Leeds City Council started construction last November to improve connectivity between communities north and south of the ring road, providing new pedestrian crossing facilities and cycle lanes, offering a better junction layout to improve safety, as well as improve congestion for residents and commuters.

Connecting Leeds will begin overnight road surfacing works at the Dyneley Arms junction for six nights (excluding weekends) starting on Monday. 10 July to Monday, 17 July, between 8pm and 5.30am.

A council spokesperson said: “To minimise disruption, these road closures and works are planned around other works in the city such as the closure of Harewood Bridge and Dyneley Arms resurfacing, and a fully signed road diversion plan will be in place.”

To prepare for these works Leeds visitors, workers and residents are being urged to plan ahead before travelling, allowing more time for their journeys and to sign up for regular email updates or follow Connecting Leeds on social media.

Councillor Helen Hayden, Leeds City Council’s executive member for sustainable development and infrastructure, said: “I would like to thank road users for their patience in advance during this disruption at Dyneley Arms and A6120 Broadway (Fink Hill). To help minimise disruption, these road closures and works are planned and co-ordinated around hundreds of other works in the city.

“This will enable the works at Dyneley to finish ahead of the summer holidays, which will aid traffic as it forms part of the diversion route for the closure to Harewood Bridge on 26 July.

“We would like to urge motorists to please plan their journey in advance, follow the signed diversion and allow a bit of extra time for their travel. We have put together a signed diversion via and again, thank you for your patience.”
