A660 CLASSIFIED ROAD LEEDS

AMENDMENT No. 12018

STATEMENT OF REASONS FOR PROPOSING TO AMEND THE ORDER

The Best City ambition is to improve life for the people of Leeds and make our city a better place. Following a fatal collision at the Bar House Bends, there was a call for a review of the speed limit on Leeds Road between Old Pool Bank and Rotary Way/Leeds Road roundabout. The outcome of this review against the latest Department for Transport guidance supported a reduction in the speed limit from unrestricted to 50mph on the long straight section from Rotary Way Roundabout – Otley. The review also concluded that the current 40mph speed limit leading into the small hamlet and through the bar house bends was the correct speed limit, although it is proposed to extend the current 40mph speed limit beyond the first set of properties to give approaching drivers more opportunity to reduce their speeds before entering the more built up environment.

These measures will help to facilitate and promote the safe passage of traffic

The effect of the proposed measures will be as follows;

A 40mph speed limit on Leeds Road, from a point 539 metres north west of its junction with Old Pool Bank in a south easterly direction to a point 169 metres south east from its junction with The Birches.

A 50mph speed limit on Leeds Road, from a point 539 metres north west of its junction with Old Pool Bank in a north westerly direction to a point 600 metres south east of its intersection with the inscribed circle of the Rotary Way/Leeds Road roundabout.
