Temporary Thursday night road closure on A658 Pool Bank New Road

The A658 Pool Bank New Road is to be fully closed for approximately two hours overnight on Thursday as part of the ongoing works to repair and strengthen a culvert running under the road.

The road will be closed from 10:30pm in both directions on Thursday 28 June so the work can be carried out 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.

This work is taking place 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. 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.
