Have your say

The Bridgewater Place junction is to close at 4pm today due to forecasts of increasingly high winds.

It is expected to reopen at 10pm.

From 2pm diversion signs will be operating for high-sided vehicles.

When the road reopens at 10pm these signs will again be operational until midnight.

Leeds City Council will continue to monitor the wind conditions and further updates will be issued as necessary.
