The partial northbound closure will be in place from 8pm on Friday 22 July until 5.30am on Monday 25 July.

Leeds council have urged people to plan ahead for journeys this weekend as Armley Gyratory prepares for partial closure.

Canal Street (from Gloucester Terrace) inbound towards the city centre and along Wellington Road will be closed off to all vehicles, and there will be several diversion routes in place across the weekend.

Bus services 86 and 87 will be diverted towards St James's Hospital from Green Lane, via Tong Road, Whingate, Upper Wortley Road, Dixon Lane, Whitehall Road to Domestic Street omitting Wellington Road. Towards Copley Hill will be the normal route.

Elsewhere Hall Lane, Farnley will be closed due to utility works while Bell Lane, Bramley will remain closed due to resurfacing works.

For those travelling into the city centre, Armley Gyratory has strongly recommend using public transport or park and ride sites at Elland Road, Stourton and Temple Green.

With almost 4,000 spaces at these locations, these park and ride sites will be more reliable than driving into the city centre:

Elland Road for park and ride trips in from the south west and west of Leeds. Stourton ideal for trips in the south east and of Leeds. Temple Green ideal for trips in from the north and east of Leeds. For shorter trips, leave your car at home and try walking and cycling instead.
