Road widening - A65 Kirkstall Road and Commercial Road :: Shared Description

Between 2010 and July 2012, major roadworks were carried out to widen the A65 Kirkstall Road and Commercial Road, between the A58 flyover/Wellington Street junction (SE289337), and the traffic lights at Kirkstall Lane / Bridge Road (SE263356). This included widening long sections of the road to provide about 3-4km of bus lanes on each side of the road. The section between the flyover and the Willow Road junction (SE280343) converted the road from a single carriageway (which usually managed to squeeze 2 lines of traffic into a single lane)to a dual carriageway with 2 lanes each side for general traffic and a bus lane.
Since opening in August 2012, the new lanes do seem to have resulted in improved traffic flow.
