Traffic lights on two Pudsey roads are set to be upgraded after Leeds City Council announced a £2.3 million package of citywide maintenance.

The Leeds-wide programme includes traffic signal renewal, telecoms infrastructure upgrades, traffic signal control upgrades and the introduction of bus priority at various sites across the network during the 2024-25 financial year.

A council report published this week said traffic signal refurbishment would be carried out on:

  • Galloway Lane/Ederoyd Rise, Pudsey
  • B6154/Waterloo Road, Pudsey

The report says traffic signal equipment is that it has an expected lifespan of approximately 15 years. It adds: “Older equipment can also be more unreliable, leading to longer ‘down time’ in the event of failure.

“An ongoing programme of refurbishment is necessary to modernise the controller stock and replace any on-street equipment that has been identified as in poor condition following periodic inspections.”

The report can be read in full here.
