Leeds City Centre Package

The Leeds City Centre Package is a programme of works designed to support Leeds as an Urban Growth Centre as identified in the LCR Strategic Economic Plan (SEP), delivering growth in jobs and housing on the South Bank and enabling the city to be HS2 ready.

Key objectives of this scheme include:

  • The redevelopment of City Square in line with the City of Culture ambition to allow the creation of a world class gateway for the city.
  • Increase the capacity on the Inner Ring Road and M621 orbital route by reconfiguring Armley Gyratory and capacity improvements between Junctions 1 - 4 and Junction 7 M621 by 2022.
  • Reduce traffic in the city centre, including the South Bank creating a quality environment attractive to development.
  • Increase travel to the centre by sustainable modes of transport.
