Motorists warned of two temporary road closures in Leeds

Motorists who are travelling through Leeds during the night over the next few weeks are being warned to plan ahead, with two road closures in the city.

The A65 Commercial Road, Kirkstall, between Savins Mill Way and Bridge Road is closed from now until Monday 4 March 2013 overnight only between 9pm and 5.30am (Monday – Friday only).

Boar Lane, in the city centre between Park Row and Briggate will also be closed overnight from Monday 4 March 2013 to Friday 15 March 2013, between the hours of 9pm and 5.30am (Not including Friday, Saturday or Sunday nights).

Diversions for motorists will be signposted.

Both closures have been planned to enable Leeds City Council road maintenance teams to replace a worn out road surface.

The Boar Lane scheme will impact on bus routes through the city centre, access to the railway station and several hotels and businesses. All, however, have been contacted and are included in the planning of the works to ensure any disruption is kept to a minimum.
