A660: Feedback on plans to improve safety and street design

Between 2016-2021 there were 172 casualties along this section of the A660

A660 Route

A660 junction at Victoria Road

The A660 is a main road into and out of the city centre, as well as a popular route for students living in the area accessing university and college campuses.

It is one of the busiest cycle routes in Leeds with over 1,000 cyclists using it daily, however, it suffers from a high casualty rate. 

Our proposals aim to make the route safer for all road users. The plans include:

  • A reduction of speed from 30mph to 20mph along the A660 Otley Road between Shaw Lane and St Michael’s Road. 
  • Safety improvements where the A660 meets North Lane, Victoria Road, Hyde Park Road (Hyde Park Corner), Clarendon Road and St Mark’s Road junctions. 
  • Continuous crossings along the A660 with other junctions, to give pedestrians and cyclists priority. 
  • A diagonal crossing facility at North Lane junction, Leeds’ second diagonal crossing. 
  • 2-metre wide segregated cycle lanes both inbound and outbound along most of the route. 
  • Widened footways along the route 
  • Improved bus stops and shelters, including relocating some stops 
  • Merging infrequently used bus shelters. 
  • Closure of St Michael’s Road and Regent Park Avenue to motorised vehicles to prevent rat-running. 
  • Improved landscaping and spaces along the route, including a more pleasant environment around the War Memorial on St Michael’s Road.
