Allerton Drive junction improvements imminent

One of the most difficult junctions in the village is the meeting point of Allerton Drive and Whitegate close to a blind bend. Residents of the road have lobbied the parish Council which in turn has lobbied Leeds Highways resulting in a site meeting several months ago. Councillor Becky Holdsworth met with Highways road safety experts at the junction and improvements were promised to be explored.

Now the Parish Council have heard the work has been given to contractors and should be completed in coming weeks. Changes will see new and better sited road signs warning of a concealed entrance on a bend and dogtooth road markings.
