Work to repair and replace defective joints in the concrete base of Stanningley Bypass is set to resume next month, council highway engineers have said.
Outbound traffic will be diverted onto the inbound side of the carriageway to maintain traffic flows. Slip-roads at Richardshaw Lane in Pudsey will be closed.
Work, which will tackle buckling in parts of the busy bypass during summer heatwaves, will last from 8pm on Friday, 18 February to Monday, 28 February 2022 at 6am.
A highways spokesperson said:
“This is a continuation of the work that took place during the past year. The same road closure/traffic management arrangement will be taking place again on the outbound section of Stanningley bypass.
“Once again this has been planned to be delivered during the February half-term window to minimise traffic disruption to the network.
“Once completed, this section of the bypass will then be ready to benefit a full resurface of the repaired section in the near future.
“We appreciate that this may be disruptive to some road users. The timing of the work and type of traffic management have been planned to minimise any disruption as much as possible.”
