SE2633 : Two lanes into one, Stanningley Road

taken 4 years ago, 3 km from Headingley, Leeds, Great Britain

Two lanes into one, Stanningley Road
Two lanes into one, Stanningley Road
The Stanningley Bypass continues as a dual carriageway along the original route of Stanningley Road until here, at which point two lanes become one. Even in school holidays (as in this photo) there are queues in a morning rush hour, and in term time they can stretch back a mile or more. To the right is the completed but not yet formally opened "cycle superhighway". I confess to smug feelings freewheeling down it past the queueing traffic.
Leeds-Bradford cycle superhighway
A facility constructed in 2014-16 mainly along the route of the A64 / A647 between Seacroft and Bradford via Leeds, about 13 miles / 21km in total, to provide, as far as possible, a physically segregated cycle lane. Part of phase 1 of the wider City Connect project.

The Leeds-Bradford section was formally opened on 30 June 2016. The Leeds-Seacroft eastern section was due to open later the same year, but as of 2018 had still not bee formally declared open due to disputes about the standard of construction.
