Poll result: 87% say Stanningley Bottom traffic situation is ‘worse’

Traffic problems at Stanningley Bottom are now WORSE then they were before, according to some West Leeds Dispatch readers.

A Dispatch poll which closed last week saw 87% of readers who voted said the Stanningley Bottom road changes were not an improvement. Only 8% said they had improved road safety.

The changes follow a long-running community campaign to improve road safety following changes to the road layout as part of the multi-million pound CityConnect cycle superhighway between Leeds and Bradford.

There was a total of 436 votes.

As previously reported, changes in the road layout have proved unpopular with some on social media.

Highways chiefs hope the work will address road safety concerns over mini roundabouts – known as roundels – which were installed last year as part of the multi-million pound City Connect cycle superhighway linking Bradford and Leeds.

Work, which started last month, includes textured over-run areas, together with a larger central margin in middle of the road.

More than 100,000 trips were recorded on the Cycle Superhighway between June 2017 and February 2017.


  1. I live in this far fetch idea of a road. Since they have done the so called alterations its all coming away from the road. Hurrah to Leeds City Council.
