A number of roads in West Leeds have been earmarked for improvement as part of £22.76 million package of city-wide highways maintenance by Leeds City Council.

Schemes of note include £390,000 on the replacement of failed bridge bearings at Owlcotes in Pudsey, replacement of parapet safety fencing at Stanningley Bypass and £425,000 on the cleaning and re-painting of all cast iron and re-setting historic stone setts at Newlay Bridge in Bramley.

A council report – which can be read in full here – says:

“The council budget proposals for 2018/19 highlights that the funding available for highway maintenance, along with other services, is under increasing pressure. It is essential that the limited funding available is used as strategically as possible to ensure that it has the optimum overall impact on the city’s road network.”

Work has been split up into several categories:

  1. Parts of Stanningley Road & Stanningley Bypass are in a shocking state due to potholes.Since i started driving in 1981 i have never seen these roads in such a state.This being the major A road between the two cities is something the council should feel ashamed about.
