Stop the Development of Lawnswood Roundabout

Leeds City Council is proposing to waste £13m on Lawnswood Roundabout claiming that the changes will make the junction safer.  However the council’s own business case shows that the safety improvements are so small that they will never adequately justify the expense.  It also states that the scheme:

  • Will increase noise and air pollution for residents and pupils at Lawnswood School 

  • Increase congestion for road users 

  • Increase bus journey times

It is also likely that rat-running through neighbouring areas in West Park will increase. 

The business case concludes that the proposal is “poor value for money”. 

We demand that the council scraps the scheme and find more cost effective ways of improving safety on local roads for pedestrians and cyclists.
