Work to improve pedestrian safety on a busy road in Pudsey town centre is due to officially start today (Monday).
Leeds City Council is installing a zebra crossing and road improvements on Robin Lane, near its junction with Manor House Street.
The work is expected to last until Friday, August 4, and will cause delays in the area.
As reported by The Dispatch in May, the Pudsey site of one of three in West Leeds earmarked for road safety improvements. A council report said at the time:
“To date there have been a total of three slight pedestrian related accidents in past five years at this location.
“The provision of a formal crossing would provide improved connectivity within Pudsey district centre for a location that experiences exceptionally high crossing numbers including specific documented demand from older people and children; however, it does require alterations to the junction with Manor House Street in order for it to fit on site.”
Coal Hill Lane (on the border of Bramley and Farsley) and Leeds and Bradford Road in Bramley are also set for improvements.
Meanwhile, mains work by Yorkshire Water will continue to lead to delays on Troydale Lane in Pudsey until Friday.
