Corridor Improvement Programme Phase 1 Owl Lane Wakefield

This scheme forms part of the Corridor Improvement Programme, a mixture of low and medium cost highway interventions on the Key Route Network (KRN).

The A638 at Owl Lane/ Chancery Road/ Leeds Road roundabout sees significant peak congestion creating delays in journey times. These delays also impact on public transport reliability for services in the area.

The roundabout also currently lacks in pedestrian facilities and provisions for cyclists.

The scheme aims to make changes to the configuration of the roundabout, provide a bus lane and improve pedestrian crossing facilities.
