A “dangerous” Leeds road laden with potholes will be resurfaced as part of a new scheme to improve safety.

Residents had raised concerns about the state of Constable Road, in Tingley, and fears that cyclists could be injured because of high speeds and potholes.

And this week, Leeds City Council revealed plans to resurface the road, and introduce a 20mph speed limit.

The speed limit will also apply to the adjacent Lowry Road in Tingley.

Andrea Jenkyns, MP for Morley and Outwood, said the council’s Highways department had told her that roads are regularly inspected, and any defects will be repaired to make the road as safe as possible for residents in the area.

She said: “Constable Road has been of concern for some time now among residents and I hope they are reassured by this news.”

Leeds Industrial Museum in Armley will be brimming with excitement on August 1 when, for the first time ever, the historic site plays host to none other than the Yorkshire Open Hat Throwing Championships, the brainchild of Yorkshire-based poet Glyn Watkins. picture Tony Johnson.
