Lib Dem Yeadon councillors Ryk Downes and Sandy Lay have welcomed news that the proposed closure of Queensway on Sunday 17th January will no longer go ahead thanks to an early finish to the chicane replacement works.
The construction, which started at the beginning of December, was due to require closing for two weekends but the roadworks were finally completed by Monday 11th January.
With the priority signage for the chicanes to be removed over the course of the week, only the electrical pole works remain outstanding.
Cllr Ryk Downes (Lib Dem, Otley and Yeadon) said: “It is great to see the chicanes that have proved so troublesome for Queensway residents finally removed and replaced by the speed tables which should prove much more effective.”
Cllr Sandy Lay (Lib Dem, Otley and Yeadon) commented: “We are pleased that the work has been finished ahead of schedule, with disruption to the area thankfully much less than originally planned.”
