Road diversions are in place in Wetherby to allow the long-awaited rebuilding of a collapsed wall on a key gateway to the town.

Contractor HACS Construction will be carrying out work on behalf of Micklethwaite Management Company to rebuild the retaining wall which is on private land on the A168 Boston Road between Micklethwaite Grove (opposite the police station) and Lodge Lane.

The wall was damaged at Christmas 2015.

To allow the works to take place safely, a one-way road closure will be required on Boston Road for the duration of the work, which is expected to take 18 weeks to complete.

Following local discussions, the following arrangements will be in place:

Traffic and cyclists travelling northbound along Boston Road from the Boston Road Roundabout will be unaffected as a contraflow will be in place. Anyone wishing to travel southbound from Market Place/High Street to the Boston Road roundabout will be diverted northbound along High Street -North Street  - Deighton Road - up to the Deighton road roundabout  - Hudson Road - Privas Way.

Access to Wetherby Leisure Centre on Lodge Lane will be maintained throughout. Advanced warning signs  have been installed on site advising road users of the forthcoming works.

In addition to the works and traffic management for the private repairs to the wall, to utilise the summer holiday period and repair the deterioration of the carriageway on St James Street, Leeds City Council will be carrying out resurfacing works from 27 July to 1 September.

These works will require a 24-hour road closure and access to residents, businesses and the car park will be maintained where possible.

Signed diversions will be in place for all traffic and pedestrians to follow.

Bus services will be impacted by these works and you can see full details at www.wymetro.com/travelnews/busalerts

Linton Bridge will remain closed during this period, but is expected to reopen in September 2017, subject to weather conditions.
