Roadworks: Stourton Park and Ride Overnight Works

Connecting Leeds will be carrying out overnight works between 20:00 and 06:00 at various locations around Stourton in order to carry out surfacing and safely install a gantry. Some of these works will be noisy, however to minimise disruption the loudest activities will be undertaken first on each shift.


To allow them to undertake these works a number of local road closures, with signed diversions, will be in place as follows:

  • M621 junction 7 anti-clockwise entry slip road closure.

  • Closure of the city bound carriageway of A61 Wakefield Road from the roundabout by Arla foods until its junction with the M621junction 7 ‘Stourton’ roundabout.

  • Closure of the city bound A639 Leeds Road to Pontefract Road link from the ‘Royal Mail’ roundabout to its junction with the A61 Wakefield.

  • M621 junction 7 clockwise entry slip road closure.

Following completion of these works, Connecting Leeds do not foresee any further overnight activities taking place, and the park and ride is due to open in early September, with some work continuing during the day to complete the site. They don’t anticipate disruption to residents whilst they undertake these final works which include landscaping and demobilising the site compound.
