Pudsey roadworks to begin




Work will begin on improving the road surface at Chapeltown in Pudsey next week.



Leeds City Council’s highways team will carry out road resurfacing work to replace the worn-out surface on Chapeltown including part of Uppermore to Tofts Road and Church Lane to St Lawrence Close from Monday 14 October.



The work will be carried out daily from 9:30am to 3:30pm from Monday to Friday and is expected to be finished on Tuesday 29 October. During those times, road closures will be in place with diversion signs directing traffic to alternate routes. Outside of the work times the roads will able to open to traffic as normal. Throughout the process all businesses will be open and pedestrian access will not be affected.



Affected bus services will be signed at bus stops and will include route numbers 4, 4A, 205, 611, X14 and X15 - more details are available on Metroline 0113 245 7676.



A Leeds City Council spokesperson said:



“We are keen to get this work done to improve the road surface as quickly as possible with a minimum of disruption. We would ask road users to please bear with us while the roadworks take place and apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused.”
