Work to ease traffic congestion at Rodley Roundabout is set to begin in July after government funding was agreed towards the scheme.

Signalisation of the roundabout is expected to be completed in February 2015.

Stuart Andrew, MP for Pudsey, Horsforth and Aireborough, welcomed the announcement from the Secretary of State for Transport, Patrick McLoughlin.

He said: “The A657/A6120 Rodley Roundabout is notorious and there have been many complaints about how heavily congested it is during peak times.”
