MAJOR works are set to improve safety at one of Yeadon’s “most dangerous” junctions.

The area’s three ward councillors have announced that a scheme has been agreed for the Harper Lane/Henshaw Lane/Ivegate junction after negotiations with Leeds City Council’s Highways Department.

Cllr Ryk Downes said:”This is one of the most dangerous junctions in Yeadon and one we get most complaints about.

“It has difficult site lines with traffic wanting to follow different routes all of which causes confusion and issues for local motorists.

“The proposal is to alter the carriage way, realign the footpaths and introduce a mini roundabout,” Cllr Sandy Lay said. “This is designed to make turning easier and reduce the number of cars queuing to enter the junction. It should also make it easier for pedestrians to cross the road.”

Cllr Colin Campbell added: “We hope this will improve traffic and pedestrian safety and will compliment the speed indicator device we recently managed to get installed on Henshaw Lane.”
