15 of the Leeds roads set for pothole repairs and resurfacing in 2024 - in pictures

Leeds City Council has laid out its extensive road resurfacing plan for 2024.

The local authority has signed off on plans to resurface over 138km worth of city roads amid growing complaints over potholes.

Figures obtained via a Freedom of Information request in January found that Leeds City Council recorded nearly 5,000 more potholes in 2023 than before the Covid-19 pandemic.

In July of last year, the West Yorkshire Combined Authority announced more than £73million would be made available to tackle potholes and resurface roads – with more than £17million pledged to Leeds.

Now, Leeds City Council has released a full list of the roads set for planned resurfacing work this year, including dozens carried over from 2023.

Planned maintenance and strengthening programmes are developed to maintain the assets in a safe and serviceable condition appropriate for their use together with a view to minimising whole life costs.
