Bar Lane roundabout

We are asking for your views on proposals to improve the traffic flow in and around Newton Bar roundabout.

The measures being considered include:

  • Increasing the size of the roundabout, which sees 35,000 vehicles each day passing at the junction of A61 Leeds Road and the A650 dual carriageway in Wakefield.
  • Extra lanes controlled by traffic signals, with pedestrian crossings and facilities for cyclists and to give buses priory, could also be installed.
  • The area around Newton Bar roundabout has a large number of housing and commercial developments either under construction, or being planned for the area.

People can also view displays at New Southgate Surgery, Buxton Place, from Monday 12 March until Friday 23 March, from 9am to 12:30pm and 1pm to 6pm.

There will also be a drop-in session at Outwood Memorial Hall on Tuesday 13 March from 4pm to 7pm with plans on display.​
