Temporary closure of Clay Pit Lane for rescheduled works

Clay Pit Lane in Leeds city centre is to be temporarily closed to traffic for improvement works.

Plans to resurface the carriageway were put on hold earlier this month but will now go ahead next week.

As well as resurfacing, crossing facilities for pedestrians will be upgraded too.

On Monday 4 March, there will be single lane closures on the carriageway bringing traffic into the city centre between 9.30am and 4.30pm.

On Tuesday 5 and Wednesday 6 March the carriageway bringing traffic into the city centre will be closed completely from 7pm and 7am on both days.

The carriageway taking traffic out of the city centre will be closed entirely from 7am on Thursday 7 March through to 9pm on Friday 8 March.

Only the section of Clay Pit Lane in the immediate vicinity of the Leeds Arena will closured with diversions in place and signposted.

The work is the final phase of road closures on Clay Pit Lane as part of a wider improvement programme in preparation for the opening of the Leeds Arena.

Leeds City Council apologises for any inconvenience this causes.
