Temporary closure of Cycle Superhighway near Armley Link Trading Estate

To facilitate signal upgrades to the bus gate and pedestrian crossing near to Gloucester Terrace in Armley, a short section of the Leeds Bradford Cycle Superhighway will be closed for 2 weeks.

As part of Leeds City Council's Connecting Leeds programme signal upgrades to the bus gate and pedestrian crossing near to Gloucester Terrace on Armley road will take place this Autumn. 

To accommodate this it will be necessary to temporarily close a small section of the inbound cycle lane from the Armley Link Junction to the pedestrian/cycle crossing adjacent to the SPAR garage. 

Details of the section to be closed and the advisory signage are shown in the image. This closure is planned for late October/ early November and will last for 2 weeks. Specific dates will be added when confirmed.

Works on the main highway will take place at the same time, lasting for approximately 12 weeks. Construction activity will take place Monday to Friday, from 7:30pm to 6:00am.

Traffic management detailed below will be in place, however as these works are being undertaken at night, significant traffic disruption is not expected.

  • Stage 1 - 2 weeks: outbound lane 1 (bus lane) closure along the A647 Canal Street
  • Stage 2 - 2 weeks: inbound lane closure with temporary traffic signals along the A647 Armley Road (from Lidl to Gloucester Terrace)
