Leeds highways advisory notice - Sunday 17 July

ADVISORY NOTICE ISSUED ON BEHALF OF NATIONAL GRID, WEST YORKSHIRE POLICE AND LEEDS CITY COUNCIL

Road users in Leeds are advised of potential delays to routes this Sunday (17 July) as a result of a large vehicle carrying an abnormal load travelling into the city.

The vehicle is carrying a generator to be installed at Kirkstall Sub Station, and will be travelling from Goole Docks to Kirkstall due to enter Leeds from Junction 28 of the M62 at approximately 11am and reaching the site at Kirkstall at approximately 1pm.

The journey has been organised by National Grid with approval from West Yorkshire Police and Leeds City Council. Due to its size (being almost 70metres long, more than five metres wide and weighing 335 tonnes) the vehicle moves slowly and will be escorted by six police vehicles to ensure safety and to co-ordinate any special manoeuvres required along the route.

The route the vehicle will take in the city is as follows: M62 Motorway West bound at J28 Tingley, turn right along the A653, continue to the A6110 Ring Road (Beeston/ Wortley/ Farnley), turn left and join A647 Stanningley By Pass, turn right to B6157 Bradford Road/ Town Street Stanningley, turn left Swinnow Lane, turn right Broad Lane, turn right Wyther Lane and then left through the access gates to site at Kirkstall.

Due to the size and travelling speed of this vehicle all road users are advised to use alternate routes where possible as its movement will cause significant delays. Latest details on road and traffic information can be found at https://roadworks.org/
