Warning issued over Stanningley Bypass traffic delays

Drivers face a ‘strong likelihood’ of traffic congestion and delays as work to build a new crossover point on Stanningley Bypass starts.

The bypass will run as a single lane in both directions between 8pm on Friday 21 October and Sunday 30 October.

Road users are advised of the strong likelihood of congestion on the bypass and the Dawson’s Corner roundabout area between those times.

The work will create a new crossover on the central reserve near the Owlcotes slip road which will allow future road maintenance to be carried out with reduced impact on road users.

A spokesman for Leeds City Council said:

“This scheme is important in terms of the flexibility it will give us in future to carry out work on the Stanningley Bypass such as road resurfacing with much less of an impact on road users.

“So it is a case of some short-term pain for long-term gain and we would ask for road users to be patient while this work is done or consider using alternative routes.”
