Arthington Station Action Group gains supporters

Message from ASAG:

First of all I would like to welcome Martin Hemingway to our supporters group. Martin is a member of the Headingley Green Party and they are supporting our proposals to re- open Arthington Station. I would also like to welcome Helen Pickering from the North West Leeds Transport Forum. Both groups are fighting against the Trolley Bus proposals for the A660 and believe that Arthington Station would form part of a viable alternative to this £250 million pound scheme. We thank them for their support and I hope we are able to offer our own support in return. Continue reading

Grand Départ 2014 – road closures and map

A broad statement on closures, the detailed consequences will be telling.

Stage 1 road closures – Saturday 5 July 2014 The roads listed will be closed for a minimum period of eight hours to allow preparation of the race route, the handover to the Tour de France organisers, access for the publicity caravan (which comprises more than 150 sponsors’ vehicles), the race itself, the removal of race infrastructure, and the safe dispersal of spectators. Given the anticipated number of visitors to North Yorkshire, it is likely that the roads will be closed for most of the Saturday. Wherever feasible, access will be maintained on key routes that cross the closed roads for as long as possible before the race.
