Weetwood Lane to be closed for emergency sewer repairs

From 10am on Wednesday 22nd November, Yorkshire Water will be carrying out emergency work to repair a collapsed sewer on Weetwood Lane that will result in a partial road closure.

The road closure will be between Hollies Park and the University of Leeds’ Oxley Halls of Residence which is the area of the road where the repairs are taking place. Vehicle access will be maintained for students to get to the halls of residence and for residents that live in the Foxhill estate. Access for pedestrians will be maintained for the duration of the work. It is expected that the works will take up to five weeks to complete as large scale excavations are required.  Diversion routes will be signposted around the area affected with signs visible at Lawnswood roundabout, the A6120, Weetwood Lane and Otley Road. 

Tracey Wilks, customer manager at Yorkshire Water, said: “ We apologise for any traffic disruption this emergency work will cause but it is vital that we repair this sewer and we will aim to complete it as quickly as possible. Photographs of area will be taken prior to the work commencing and we’ll make every effort to put the road back to its original condition.”

If you have any questions about this scheme we have a live web chat service available or a free call back can be requested.
