Please note this information has been updated as of January 2021 to reflect the construction of the scheme and close of the engagement. You can find the final report of the engagement here.

In response to the feedback received in the public engagement, the proposed scheme has since been revised to address the issues raised. Officers from Leeds City Council were asked to review the bus stops in Middleton to see if improvements could be made to upgrade the existing facilities. Following the review, the decision was made to upgrade bus stops along Middleton Park Avenue, Belle Isle Road and Ring Road Middleton, improving existing facilities for bus users along key routes within Middleton.

The improvement works will include:

• Real time information at all bus stops.

• Installing new bus shelters.

• Footpath improvements near to bus stops which will assist all pedestrians, particularly older people and those with mobility issues.

• Upgrading the existing layby roads to enhance passenger experience


Background

Middleton Circus is a busy location which is served by several high frequency bus services. This scheme proposes to bring all bus stops closer together, creating a new bus waiting area, well linked to local amenities such as the local shops, Aldi, schools and Middleton Park.

Improvements to travel information will also make it easier to use the bus. This scheme will also create better loading and parking opportunities for local and small businesses.

The proposals for this location are:

• To provide a bus interchange area at Middleton Circus with all bus stops located together

• To provide enhanced bus shelters, with real time information displays

• To provide additional parking outside the local shopping centre

• To provide safe and convenient pedestrian/cycle routes with CCTV coverage and improved crossing opportunities
