As a result, Leeds City Council is warning commuters and other road users to beware of road closures around the Bridgewater Place junction tomorrow . Currently the closure is planned for 9.45am until mid-afternoon, but this might have to be brought forward into rush hour if conditions worsen. Road users are advised to allow longer for journeys.
We are also monitoring conditions in other areas of the city centre and in particular we’re keeping a close eye on the Majestic building, given its recent fire damage, in case we need to put restrictions in place around the building, on the West side of City Square.
Leeds City Council will be re-programming traffic lights to help reduce disruption and road users will be alerted by warning signs from 5am, but inevitably there will be delays and we hope people will understand that safety has to come first. The junction will re-open once the wind reduces to an acceptable level.
