Works planned for eastern section of Cycle Superhighway

The Cycle Superhighway between Seacroft and the centre of Leeds will see some sections closed for improvements, beginning in February of this year. Works will start at the Seacroft end and progress towards the city centre. These works are unrelated to the works taking place in the city centre.

These minor works are the result of a review of both the Leeds to Bradford Superhighway (CS1) and the Leeds to Seacroft (CS2) Superhighway and includes both Leeds and Bradford. This work will make the Cycle Superhighway even safer and easier to use.

The eastern section has been prioritised for changes to be made and the minor works have been developed in consultation with the CityConnect Advisory group, made up of local stakeholders and representative from cycle and walking organisations.

Improvements will be made to small elements of the route to better protect people cycling on the route, however, some closures of sections of the route may occur. Disruption will be minimised and there are other cycle-friendly routes available. Take a look at our online journey planner for route suggestions http://cyclemap.cyclecityconnect.co.uk/journey/.

The changes are proposed on the following junctions:

o York Road/Hepton Court

o York Road/Lyme Chase

o York Road/Old York Road

o York Road/Farm Foods Entrance

o York Road/Seacroft Hospital

o York Road/Sutton Approach

o York Road/Diadem Drive

o York Road/ Hope inn Junction

Improvements will be made to pedestrian crossings and extra signage will be installed. Sections where the Superhighway passes bus stops will be monitored for interactions between people on bikes and people getting off buses

These works are unrelated to the project delivering the CityConnect project in the centre of Leeds linking CS1 with CS2. We are working in partnership with Leeds City Council to ensure that the disruption caused by recent events is minimised and quality is maintained. Future updates will be available on Facebook, Twitter and on our website.
