  • 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

    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.
