Dear Stakeholder,

I am writing to advise you, as part of the ongoing ELOR works, on Tuesday 6th April 2021 we will be closing both Coal Road and Skeltons Lane.

Coal Road will be closed permanently on Tuesday 6th April 2021 at 00:0.  This is to allow us to link Junction 2, A58 roundabout to Junction 3, Skeltons Lane Roundabout.

At the same time we will temporarily close Skeltons Lane to complete the construction of the new Junction 3, Skeltons Lane roundabout. This will mean that Skeltons Lane will be closed from 00:01 on Tuesday 6th April 2021 until approximately the end of August.

Please see attached drawing showing closures and diversion route.

We will then reopen Skeltons Lane to the public with the roundabout constructed and operational at the end of August. Once Skeltons Lane is reopened we would be looking to permanently close Thorner Lane. 

We will be carrying out these works using the latest government guidelines for construction sites, protecting residents and our workforce.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience these works may cause and appreciate your continued patience. If you require any further details, please contact us at elor@leeds.uk

Kind regards

ELOR Project Team,

Leeds City Council,

Highways and Transportation.
