Temporary Monday night road closure on A658 Pool Bank New Road

The A658 Pool Bank New Road is to be fully closed for approximately five and a half hours overnight on Monday as part of the ongoing works to repair and strengthen a culvert.

The road will be closed on Monday 6 August from 10:30pm in both directions to allow for works at the site of the 100-year-old culvert which runs underneath the A658 north-east of the Dyneley Arms junction between the A660 Leeds Road and Pool-in-Wharfedale.

The full closure is being carried out overnight in order 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 Tuesday 7 August. 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.
