A company putting in high-speed internet infrastructure across Leeds will be continuing to install their main feeder from Rodley to Calverley, which will involve crossing Rodley Roundabout and continuing up Rodley Lane towards Calverley.
Bosses at CityFibre say that due to the volume of existing services, all options to use existing ducting and install in the footway have been exhausted, and they now have no option but to install most of the track in the carriageway
To allow the works to take place safely, and maintain traffic flow, they will carry out the works to cross the roundabout under a series of evening lane closures between 7pm-11pm, starting Friday, 2 September 2022.
Work in the first phase will include the installation of approximately 800 metres of carriageway track to the junction of Calverley Lane and Town Gate. These works will start on Tuesday, 30 August and will involve the use of traffic lights which will be restricted to 9.30am–3.30pm and 7pm-11pm.
This phase of the works is expected to continue until the end of September.
A spokesperson said: “There will be unavoidable disruption to traffic however, we will closely monitor the works to ensure this is kept to a minimum, with a view to making changes as the work progresses if the situation can be improved.”
