We are writing to tell you about upcoming works taking place on the A64(M) Inner Ring Road, and A61 Regent Street. The work will focus on rebuilding the rapidly deteriorating Regent Street flyover.
The condition of the flyover means it now needs significant work in order to ensure public safety. Our extensive feasibility work has shown that the most cost-effective and beneficial solution is to replace the existing structure with a new one.
How will the work affect me?
- The contraflow on the A64(M)/A64 will be implemented on 1 June. The associated works for installing the contraflow will start at 7pm on 31 May with the closure of the A64(M) until 5:30am the following morning. Some of the work is weather dependant and a contingency night is allowed for on 1 June.
- The A64 (M) and part of the A64 will be reduced in capacity from four lanes to two from 31 May
- The A61 Regent Street will maintain in its current capacity of four lanes under the flyover
- There will be a handful of weekend/evening closures over the space of the works. The first one of these will take place on 27 June and run for 5 consecutive weekend’s
More information on the scheme and diversions in place can be found here.
We will continue to work with bus operators to ensure that buses can continue to operate effectively throughout the work for Leeds residents and those working in the city. We would urge people to plan their journeys in advance and expect delays for the duration of works.
The work is set to be complete by spring 2022.
