It’s meant months of delays and frustration for west Leeds motorists, but a major road improvement scheme at Thornbury Barracks roundabout is now complete.

The 10-month project has been carried out at the roundabout where the A647 Stanningley Road meets the B6154 to improve access on the primary road link between Leeds and Bradford.

The £3.4million scheme has been designed to reduce traffic congestion, improve accessibility, road safety, bus journey time reliability and connectivity on one of the busiest road sections in the city.
Improvements include:
  • Creating three lanes running through the middle of the roundabout in both main directions
  • Traffic signals on all arms of the roundabout
  • Reconfiguration of lanes
  • Provision of pedestrian and cycling facilities
  • Infill of the existing subway
  • Upgrading of bus stops and street lighting improvements
Leeds City Council executive member for transport and economy and Pudsey councillor Richard Lewis said:
“It has been a lengthy project to carry out so I would like to thank everyone for their patience and would ask for that to continue a little longer while the new road system settles down in the coming weeks.”
