Leeds Bus station is due to be closed for two weekends this month to allow resurfacing work to take place.

Temporary stops will be set up on September 17, 18, 24 and 25 while work to the bus bays and carriageways is completed.

Diane Groom, West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s assistant director of customer services, said: “Over the past 16 weeks, we have been able to carry out most of this much-needed resurfacing work with minimum disruption by moving services to alternative stands. However, to complete this scheme to provide passengers with smoother, more comfortable journeys, we need to carry out these closures.

“Alternative and temporary stop locations have been chosen carefully to provide as much capacity as possible and also to minimise disruption.”

She said they had avoided the busier weekends in August and chosen dates when passenger numbers were expected to be more manageable.

The Bus Station Travel Centre will be open as normal as will shops and the passenger concourse area.

Space will be provided for waiting buses on Lady Lane and Templar Street, which will mean some on-street parking bay closures.

Extra staff will be working to help bus users. Visit www.wymetro.com/weekendclosures for full details.
