Diversions ahead with essential repairs to close Harewood Bridge

Motorists should brace for essential repair works scheduled on Harewood Bridge. These critical works, aimed at preserving the long-term safety and integrity of the structure, will take place from 26th July to 24th August.

diversions ahead at Harweood Bridge

Due to the bridge's narrow confines and the location of the excavations, these essential works necessitate a full bridge closure.

However, disruption to traffic will be minimised, with a comprehensive diversion in place suitable for all vehicles. This will reroute traffic via:

  • A61 Harrogate Road

  • Ring Road Moortown

  • Ring Road Meanwood

  • Ring Road Adel

  • A660 at Lawnswood roundabout

  • A660 Otley Road

  • A660 Leeds Road Bramhope to the A658 Dyneley Arms junction

  • Pool Bank New Road

  • Main Street Pool /Pool bridge into Huby /Weeton and through to the roundabout at Pannal – and vice versa

To mitigate further disruptions along this route, other planned works will be limited where possible to maintain the free flow of traffic.

Despite the closure, it's good news for pedestrians and cyclists as they will retain access across the bridge. For motorists, it is advisable to take note of the diversion routes. To aid navigation, additional signage will be erected on wider approaches to alert of the closure and guide drivers towards alternative routes.

Early warning signs have been installed at the site to inform regular bridge users of the upcoming works. Furthermore, signs have been placed at strategic locations throughout the area to ensure awareness of the temporary changes.

Motorists are encouraged to share this information with any interested parties to ensure as many people as possible are aware of the upcoming works and can plan accordingly.
