We’re Resurfacing the A62 Leeds Road

road marking

The resurfacing will affect the A62 Leeds Road between Bradley Road traffic lights and Stocks Bank Road.

Why are we resurfacing?

This important work will ensure the road remains safe and will help prevent new potholes from forming and minimise other wear and tear.

When are we resurfacing?

We will begin resurfacing works on the evening of Monday 11 October. Work will then take place each weekday evening for a six to eight week period.

To reduce disruption, work will be broken down into phases. The majority of the work will take place from the evening and overnight. Between 7 pm and 6 am Monday to Friday and during the day on Sundays between 8 am to 6 pm.

Work won’t take place on Saturdays. Businesses on affected roads will remain open throughout with match days also unaffected by road closures.

How might the resurfacing affect you?

Diversions will be in place for any road closures and notices will be placed on all affected bus stops before and during the works.

Affected residents will receive a letter before the works commence with more information.

Councillor Naheed Mather, Cabinet Member for Environment, says:

“It’s important these resurfacing works are taking place now, ahead of the winter season. Helping to prevent new potholes forming and minimising other wear and tear on the road which can be more prevalent during the colder months of the year.

“These works also provide the foundations for the A62 to Cooper Bridge Improvement Scheme.”

Once resurfacing work is complete, work will begin on other improvements to the route. These will include safety improvements for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists, the creation of more green spaces alongside the road, and sustainable drainage to minimise flooding.

The improvements are set to begin next year.
