Calverley and Farsley benefits further from ambitious transport plans
The Labour council’s vision is for Leeds to be a compassionate, caring city that helps all our residents benefit from the city’s economic growth. Getting our transport system right is an important part of achieving this.
Through the biggest-ever transport conversation held in the city, the Council quite rightly identified our area as one for some major improvements in tackling congestion, improving public transport and improving air quality.
This is in addition to the existing work already completed on Rodley and Thornbury Barracks roundabouts.
The new plans include:
- Upgrading Dawsons Corner roundabout to improve traffic flow
- Doubling the number of car parking spaces at New Pudsey Station, making it into a park and ride
- Increased bus services with a new Leeds High Frequency Bus Network
- Bus priority measures through Stanningley and along the A647
- Connecting cycle routes into New Pudsey Station to provide cycle-rail links, and installing a cycle hub with bike parking and other facilities
Pudsey Labour Councillor Richard Lewis said:
“The need to improve all of these junctions is important not only to improve traffic flow and air quality, but also they are essential links for people to access jobs more easily with consistent travel times. Alongside the recent improvements at Thornbury Barracks and Rodley Roundabouts these junctions are vital for keeping our city moving, so we have listened to what people have told us and now we must work together to make sure we get these improvements right so everyone benefits.”
