Leeds Festival takes place over the forthcoming Bank Holiday weekend, and with the arrangements now finalised Leeds City Council have released details of the traffic management schemes to be implemented.

Bardsey is not affected as directly as some of our neighbouring villages, but is likely to experience some indirect effects in terms of increased traffic on the A58 at certain times.

Due to closure of the A64 eastbound between the Seacroft roundabout and the A1M, northbound traffic will be diverted via the A58 and Collingham between 04:00am on Wednesday 25th August and the evening of Thursday 26th August. This is to provide for the establishment of pick up and drop off (PUDO) points on the A64.

During Friday, Saturday and Sunday the A64 closure will be removed, but traffic to the PUDOs will be routed from the A1M via the A58 to the A64.
