Busy Wyther Lane remains closed today after emergency gas replacement works over-ran.
Work at Wyther Lane was supposed to take eight days until yesterday, Friday, 28 January, but have run into problems.
A Leeds City Council spokesperson said:
“We have been notified by Northern Gas Networks that the ongoing works have run into issues with the new Gas Governor not being able to provide enough pressure to supply Bramley, they have a team working to resolve this.
“However until they succeed they cannot disconnect the old supply in the road and the excavation will need to remain open, they now expect the works to continue into the weekend.”
The works are taking place on Wyther Lane between the junction with Broad Lane and Kirkstall Bridge. Work was originally scheduled to take place during the half-term school holidays but had been brought forward.
Wyther Lane only re-opened last month after being closed for several months last year due to damage caused by a car crash to the Wyther Lane Bridge and the installation of traffic lights.
Earlier this week WLD reported some of the traffic congestion in Kirkstall caused by the works, which has led to the closure of Broad Lane and the council reconfiguring traffic lights to ensure a better traffic flow.
