Plan ahead from 30 June weekend road closures for resurfacing works between Fink Hill and Horsforth (A6120)
From Friday 30 June (8pm) to Monday 3 July (6am), the A6120 Broadway between Fink Hill and Horsforth roundabout will close for the weekend to traffic in both directions, to allow for the first phase of carriageway resurfacing. During the closure the footways will remain open.
This is the first of three planned weekend closures between July and September to allow for carriageway resurfacing to be completed quickly and with the least possible disruption.
Before the closure there will be advance signage and notices to keep road users informed. Full traffic management will be in place with a diversion and signage for road users to follow.
The Fink Hill junction located between the A65 New Road Side (Horsforth roundabout) and Low Lane roundabout, is a key route for traffic travelling between the Ring Road and Horsforth. Leeds City council started construction in November last year to improve connectivity between communities north and south of the ring road, providing new pedestrian crossing facilities and cycle lanes, offering a better junction layout to improve safety, as well as improve congestion for residents and commuters.
Councillor Helen Hayden, Leeds City Council’s executive member for sustainable development and infrastructure, said:
“I would like to thank road users for their patience in advance during this disruption. The work is progressing to time and we are still expecting to be finished this Winter. This area has also been point of congestion, as well as unwelcoming to cyclists and pedestrians. Our aims for the scheme will improve local connectivity, create new pedestrian crossing facilities, and cycle lanes, improve safety at the junction and reduce local congestion.
"We would like to urge motorists to please plan their journey in advance, follow the signed diversion and allow a bit of extra time for their travel. We have put together a signed diversion via www.leeds.gov.uk/planahead and again, thank you for your patience.”
