Armley Gyratory

The Armley Gyratory scheme brings together a package of interventions to reconfigure the highway network at the gyratory junction and associated routes.

Scheme delivery is anticipated to increase the capacity on the Leeds Inner Ring Road and M621 orbital route and capacity improvements between Junctions 1 - 4 and Junction 7 M621. As a result, this will reduce through-traffic in the city centre, including the South Bank, creating a quality environment attractive to development. The scheme will also encourage walking and cycling.

The Armley Gyratory is a key junction on the Inner Ring Road to the west of Leeds city centre. It is a major entry/exit point for traffic travelling through and into the city with an estimated 100,000 vehicles passing through it daily (pre Covid-19).

After two rounds of public consultation the designs have evolved, with feedback being used to understand the features that are most important to local people, which have been retained and enhanced in the new design. The updated designs will:

  • Provide more appealing and accessible routes for both cyclists and pedestrians;
  • Improve safety for all road users;
  • Allow traffic to flow more freely, minimising traffic impacts on local roads;
  • Improve the local environment through new landscaping; and
  • Help facilitate improvements elsewhere in the city, including no through traffic at City Square.
