Gully cleaning will lead to Leeds City Council will closing different sections of Stanningley Bypass on four different nights this month and next.
All closures will start at 8pm and are scheduled to last until 5am but if we finish early the traffic management will be lifted and the road re-opened as soon as it is safe to do so.
The details of the closures are:
Monday 27th January
Bradford/Westbound Closure in between Henconner Lane and Swinnow Road.
Tuesday 28th January
Bradford/Westbound Closure in between Swinnow Road and Bradford Road (please note that access from Owlcotes Centre to the Bradford/Westbound carriageway will also be closed and all traffic leaving the Owlcotes Centre will be directed onto the Leeds/Eastbound carriageway or up onto Richardshaw Lane where diversion signs will be in place).
Monday 10th February
Leeds/Eastbound Closure in between Bradford Road and Swinnow Road (access to and from the Owlcotes Centre maintained and the stretch of the bypass in between Bradford Road roundabout and the exit slip for Owlcotes from will be open with lane closures. Access to Pudsey New Station will only be from Stanningley Road).
Tuesday 11th February
Leeds/Eastbound Closure in between Swinnow Road and Henconner Lane.
All affected slip roads will have the relevant diversion signs and traffic will be diverted using Stanningley Road and Stanningley Town Street.
Traffic will only be diverted through Pudsey on Monday 27th January due to the slip road onto the Bypass at the Wickes/Pudsey Road roundabout being closed.
The night work predominantly consists of gully cleaning, with the attendance of a sweeper and highways officers. Some patching of the road itself will also happen on one of the closures.
Street lights out
A 300-yard stretch of street lights are currently out on Stanningley Bypass, just before the speed camera towards ring road at Bramley, according to a report to Leeds Council via democracy site Fix My Street.
The reportee described driving conditions as ‘dangerous’.
