South entrance to village closed on December Sundays

Wike Lane, from the village boundary to the triangle, will be closed on the first two Sundays of December. The road will be closed all day to facilitate the old Pump House to be connected to water and electricity supplies.

The Pump House had been derelict for years but is currently being converted into a private dwelling. Leeds Highways say it would not be possible to carry out the work using single file traffic and traffic lights as the available roadway would be too narrow.

The road will be closed on Sundays 1st and 8th of December which will also mean that the village will lose its bus service on those days as the X99 buses would be obliged to follow the A58 between Bardsey and Collingham.
