A key Leeds city centre route is set to shut for three weeks.

Oxford Place, located just off the Leeds Headrow, will close from Monday, February 19 as further extensions to the Leeds PIPES heat network continue.

The PIPES network, which could see hundreds of homes kept warm without the need for gas boilers or electric heaters, is formed by a series of insulated pipes which carry heated water from a central location to homes.
