New York Road Tunnel in Leeds partly closed this weekend


The New York Road Tunnel in Leeds will be partly closed this weekend to allow essential maintenance and ground investigations work to take place.

The tunnel on the A64(M) will be closed eastbound at the entrance beneath the Regent Street Flyover from 7pm on Friday 23 March until 6am on Monday 26 March.

Diversions and signage will be in place while the work takes place. The A61 Regent Street and the eastbound slip road off the Inner Ring Road, passing through the latter half of the tunnel leading to Marsh Lane, will remain open for the duration.

Carrying out the work will result in some overnight noise, but all efforts will be made to mitigate its impact.
