A new date has been set for the start of Tour de France preparation roadworks at Pool-in-Wharfedale.

The patching of the A658 Main Street, originally due to begin on April 23, will now take place from Monday, May 12, and is expected to last four days.

The work will be carried out between 9.30am and 3.30pm with temporary traffic signals in use except on Thursday, May 15, when the road will be closed and diversions in place.

Leeds City Council’s highways department says pedestrian access will be available throughout.
