Pool Bank New Road Wednesday night temporary road closure

On Wednesday 26 September the A658 Pool Bank New Road north-east of the Dyneley Arms junction between the A660 Leeds Road and Pool-in-Wharfedale will be closed overnight.

From 10.30pm on Wednesday the road will close to allow the safe removal of concrete safety barriers and the site cabins, in anticipation of completing all the works by the end of the week.

The full road closure is being carried out at night to minimise impact and disruption. Signage and diversions will be in place while the work is undertaken, directing traffic via Otley town centre.

The road will re-open again from 4am Thursday 27 September. Once complete, the road will return to its current operation as a single lane operating in both directions, managed by temporary traffic signals, with a reduced 30-miles per hour speed limit in place.

It is expected the road to be fully re-opened in both directions to all traffic on 30 September after being re-surfaced, white lined and tidied up.

The project, which began in May, undertook repairs and strengthening to a 100-year-old water culvert running underneath the A658 north-east of the Dyneley Arms junction between the A660 Leeds Road and Pool-in-Wharfedale.
