NW Leeds Bus Consultation

North West Leeds Consultation Summary

Please see the below update received from First UK Bus via Cllr Barry Anderson;

Dear Stakeholder

Further to our earlier emails, I’d like to update you on the consultation on First bus services in NW Leeds that operate through Headingley.

In March we commenced the first phase of the consultation and collected over 1,000 responses from both on-line and drop-in sessions. Based on this feedback and our own data & research, we then presented a number of options through further consultation events and an on-line survey. All this information has now been considered and a set of changes has been developed that is now being registered this week for implementation from 22 October.

A summary of those changes is listed below with further detail in the attached document,

  • One journey per hour on service X84 will now run via Pool Monday to Saturday from c0700 to c1900 & a new evening timetable will operate with a new late journey from Leeds to Otley
  • Route 97 will retain its current route and will run every 20 minutes during the majority of the day, a new timetable has been designed to improve reliability
  • Service 19A will now extend from Tinshill to Yeadon via Trinity University and Rawdon. This will give new links to Rawdon Village and also improve links between Trinity and their students’ accommodation
  • Services 1, 6 and 28 will also receive new timetables to improve reliability
  • Changes will be made to driver duties to reduce cancellations, especially in the early evening
  • Service 29 will be revised to run every 30 minutes with an hourly evening service.

We will share the changes with those who took part in the consultation next week in advance of wider communication.

If we can provide any further information on this please don’t hesitate to contact Paul Turner (copied in) or myself.

To Bus or Not to Bus – That is the question?

Bus 28As Chair of local residents group I regularly meet people who have had varying experiences with the local bus service.

Recently myself and a small number of residents met with our local Ward Councillor and a representative from First Leeds Bus to go through several of the issues below: –

For example buses not turning up or buses being delayed or late.

It would be useful to gather some narrative from bus service users in this community both positive and negative experiences so that I can continue the conversation with First Leeds.

Please feel free to pass on to your friends and relatives that may use our local bus service.

Many thanks

Leeds bus station weekend closures planned

leeds-bus-stationLeeds Bus station is due to be closed for two weekends this month to allow resurfacing work to take place.

Temporary stops will be set up on September 17, 18, 24 and 25 while work to the bus bays and carriageways is completed.

Diane Groom, West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s assistant director of customer services, said: “Over the past 16 weeks, we have been able to carry out most of this much-needed resurfacing work with minimum disruption by moving services to alternative stands. However, to complete this scheme to provide passengers with smoother, more comfortable journeys, we need to carry out these closures.   Read more at: http://bit.ly/2c3lV8k

Einformation – PELICAN CROSSING – OTLEY ROAD

Otley Road 2We have received this message from Cllr Barry Anderson, as he was recently asked by a local resident whether the time limit on the pelican crossing outside the Nat West bank could be extended to allow pedestrians more time to cross. I took this up with the Traffic Engineer who advised as follows:

“Thank you for your email regarding the pelican crossing at A660 Otley Rd.  The existing crossing installed in 1993 is a pelican type crossing with flashing ambers, these crossings are no longer in use and we have been installing crossings with non-flashing periods for some time now as the flashing amber period relies on good driver behaviour and we see little of that nowadays.  I will look into our capital programme for this year to see if our funding will allow an upgrade of the crossing to remove the pelican periods and replace with a red signal to vehicles during the pedestrian period.”

Adel Crag added: This particular part of the crossing is a danger to pedestrians, and we hope that the upgrade of the crossing to remove the pelican periods and replace with a red signal to vehicles during the pedestrian period is actioned as soon as possible.

Please feel free to share this with your friends on Facebook/ Twitter.
