Vehicles trying to turn right out of Victoria Road at this busy intersection often partially block the outbound lane of Headingley Lane (A660), causing an obstruction to all road users and forcing outbound cyclists to move into the main flow of traffic. The exit of this street should either be physically blocked to motorised vehicles or controlled by traffic lights in coordination with the nearby crossroads.
It must be recognised that any measures reducing the appeal of Victoria Rd to eastbound motor traffic may displace the problem to other access points onto Headingley Lane (for example its junction with Buckingham Road). It may be wise to first analyse the source of this traffic flow and encourage more appropriate routes.
Nonetheless, action does need to be taken as the junction in its current form is a risk to the relatively high numbers of cyclists on this radial route.
