Leeds Dawson's Corner

Dawson’s Corner is a key junction between Leeds (10km west) and Bradford (5km east) located on the Ring Road in Pudsey. There are currently no crossing facilities on Bradford Road. There are pedestrian and cycle crossings on all other arms

The proposals are to provide a fully remodelled and enlarged signalised junction, utilising third party land to the southwest of the existing junction.

It is anticipated the scheme will reduce congestion, leading to smoother flows and improved air quality. Enhanced landscaping. Cycle / pedestrian provision and bus route improvements will promote alternative mode of transport.
