Only one lane will be open on all approaches to the roundabout from Friday 26 June until at least lunchtime Saturday 27 June, to allow Yorkshire Water to carry out essential works to fix a burst pipe.

Significant congestion is expected at times and drivers should avoid the area or allow extra time for their journeys during these essential works.

There is already a 30mph speed limit in place on all the approaches to the roundabout and on the roundabout itself as part of a Highways England project to widen the roundabout from 3 lanes to 4. This improvement work is planned to be completed by the end of March 2016.
