Leeds City Council has obtained ‘Pinch Point’ funding from the Department for Transport in order to improve Rodley Roundabout at the junction of A657 Rodley Lane and A6120 Ring Road Farsley. Please visit www.leeds.gov.uk/lppf for further information on 'Pinch Point' funding.Work is due to start in August 2014, and are to be undertaken at the same time as planned improvement works to Horsforth Roundabout at the junction of A65 Rawdon Road and A6120 Broadway. Both locations will see the replacement of the existing roundabout arrangement with a signalised gyratory, together with associated pedestrian, cycling and public transport improvements where appropriate. Please see the attached plan, HDC-716709-CON-01.pdf, to view the draft proposals.
The Highway Improvement Project at Roundhay Road, between it's junction with Roseville Road and Harehills Road, is now complete. Work began on the 7 October 2013 and was completed in January 2014 after the Traffic Signal Mast Arm was put in place. All works have been completed within the budget and programme. Studies identified a larger than expected number of accidents involving pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles occurring on Roundhay Road compared to similar roads elsewhere in Leeds. Several of these occurred at or near the Shepherd's Lane junction. Together with Metro and the bus operators we also identified Roundhay Road northbound as a major source of delay for buses in the busy afternoon period. We would like to hear your views on the new highway improvements. Please complete our Talking Point Survey by following the link on this page.

Following on from that, the Section Head met with groups of Private Hire Operators to discuss the proposals, listen to the views of the trade and to get a better understanding of the potential impact of any proposals.
The Licensing Committee report sets out the background and some legal issues but concentrates on two areas of the Private Hire Operator business:
1) Customer focus and Business Improvements 2) Regulatory
