New crossing for Tempest Road

Leeds City Council has approved the creation of a new zebra crossing on Tempest Road in Beeston.

The humped crossing will be located at the junction with Hardy Street and included in the 2017/18 works programme. The report states:

“Tempest Road is an unclassified local estate road that experiences high traffic volumes due to it providing a convenient link between A653 Dewsbury Road and Beeston Road. A 20mph speed limit and traffic calming is currently in place along the full length of Tempest Road. The proposed crossing site is at the junction with Hardy Street – this location is predominantly residential, with parking on both sides of the road, and a key pedestrian link to Cross Flatts Park, Beeston Central Mosque and the local primary school. The provision of a formal crossing on a speed table would improve walking journeys whilst continuing to manage vehicle speeds.”
