Bird beak fencing recently been erected at the entrance to Adel Woods

bird-beak-fencingBird beak fencing has recently been erected at the entrance to Adel Woods just off Tile Lane.

The fencing has been put in after a recent consultation with local residents. This was done to prevent cars being parked on the grass, and also to assist with traffic congestion, which was making it hazardous for parents and children to walk across the road safely. We would recommend that car owners drive further into the estate to alleviate the congestion at the bad junction of Tile Lane and Sir George Martin Drive, to allow the Fire Rescue & Ambulance Services to gain clear access into the estate.

Adel Crag Association wishes to thank the Outer North West Housing Advisory Panel and the local Housing Office Environmental for the funding.

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.

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.
