Motorists using Junction Street in Leeds from tomorrow (Tuesday 4 December) are being advised to leave themselves extra journey time, due to essential gas mains repair work.
Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the North of England’s gas distributor, is carrying out repairs to medium pressure gas main on Junction Street, near to the Crown Point Shopping Centre.
The work requires a left hand lane closure on Junction Street with a signed diversion in place through the adjacent car park. Traffic will still be able to access Kidacre Street from Junction Street.
Motorists are advised to leave additional time for travel while the work is underway. Parking facilities in the area will be unaffected.
The lane closure will be in place from Tuesday 4 December and is likely to remain in place for the next seven days while repairs are carried out.
Josh Baines, Customer Care Officer at Northern Gas Networks, said:
“Our apologies to motorists for any delays to their journeys while we carry out this essential repair work.
“We’re working closely with Leeds City Council to minimise disruption to road users, residents and businesses, and will return things to normal as quickly as we can.”
