  • Meadow Lane

    Created by M Stanley // 1 thread

    Really exciting proposals for Meadow Lane leading over Leeds Bridge and to the Corn Exchange.

    Currently meadow lane is an inner city dual carriageway. It is proposed that it will become a single carriageway in each direction for motor vehicles and the space repurposed into pedestrian and cycle facilities. Consultation is now closed but it still needs to go to detailed design stage. Full details can be seen at the attached web link.

  • Headingley Hill Bus Lane

    Created by M Stanley // 1 thread

    Changes are proposed on a 1km section of the A660 due to delays to buses caused by congestion. An outbound bus lane is proposed between Victoria Road to just past Bainbridge Road. Cycleway is retained on inbound section, but outbound section would be shared with buses. 20 buses per hour would use the bus lane at peak times. Difficult one for the campaign this? Is a 24hr 3.5m bus lane preferable to a 1m advisory cycle lane? Majority of bus lane is downhill.

    Particular discussion points were ensuring that the cycle lane continues over side roads, even though the bus lane stops, and querying a two stage pedestrian crossing (should be one stage). Plans still at early stage so will likely return to the forum.

  • Armley Gyratory Changes

    Created by M Stanley // 1 thread

    Leeds City Council are proposing major changes to the gyratory. The stated aim is to increase motor vehicle capacity at the junction which will in turn allow the removal of general motor traffic from areas of the city centre such as city square.

  • Leeds New Station Street Improvement Works

    Created by M Stanley // 1 thread

    Improvements to the pedestrian environment at the front of Leeds Station.

    Slightly annoying that this has not come to the Cycle Forum subgroups so this is the first I have seen of it.

    It seems to me more could be done to improve connectivity with cyclepoint.

  • Red Hall Bridleway

    From Leeds City Council

    RE: Declaration of a Public Bridleway at Red Hall at the south western end of the ELOR

    Leeds City Council is considering making a declaration to record the currently permissive bridleway between the Ring Road, Shadwell and Winn Moor Lane (around the perimeter of Leeds City Council’s Red Hall Site) as a Definitive Bridleway and record it on the Definitive Map and Statement.

    I have enclosed a map of the proposed bridleway shown with a solid pink line with cross bars. The section to be dedicated would be between A and B and it will have a recorded width of three metres. The ends of this existing permissive bridleway are to be diverted and improved by the East Leeds Orbital Road and have been included in the Side Roads Order which will enable them to also be recorded on the Definitive Map and Statement. I have attached a map showing the East Leeds Orbital Road, the existing permissive bridleway and the alteration that have been included in the Side Roads Order.

    The East Leeds Orbital Road will also extend the existing permissive bridleway east by providing a public bridleway along its north/ eastern boundary all the way to Barnbow Lane where it will connect to the existing bridleway network and the new/ diverted bridleways within The Springs retail and leisure development. A shared use footway/ bridleway will continue from the western end of the permissive bridleway along the side of the Ring Road/ A6120 to Leeds Bridleway No. 104.

    The claimed footpath across Red Hall Fields from the permissive bridleway to Red Hall Lane has been partially diverted by the Side Roads Order for the East Leeds Orbital Road with a bridge provided over the road. A decision will be taken to divert or dedicate the footpath on the south side of East Leeds Orbital Road will be made when future proposals for this land are decided.

    A Definitive Map Modification Order Application has been made for the claimed footpath that connects between the permissive bridleway and Winn Moor Lane and this is currently being investigated although a decision has not been made.

    I would be grateful to receive any comments that you may have regarding the declaration of the permissive bridleway as a public bridleway within four weeks of the date of this letter, so that they may be taken into consideration. If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
