Morley Hub

West Yorkshire Combined Authority, in partnership with Leeds City Council, proposed a scheme to deliver improvements to transport facilities, information and infrastructure in Morley.

Phase 1 of this scheme resulted in the installation of a Hub Totem and improved wayfinder signage between the Morley town centre and rail station. Following this, consultation on Phase 2 of the scheme occured between 1 August and 9 September 2016.

Phase 2 consultation: 1 August - 9 September 2016

The key aims of the scheme are to: 

  • Improve the interchange and pedestrian access to and from bus services
  • Address perceived pedestrian safety issues
  • Improve the operating environment for bus services
  • Improve the road environment for all users

To achieve these objectives we are proposing the following:

  • Changes to the existing traffic flow:
    - Queen Street – making it one way from Queensway to Wellington Street
    - Wellington Street (cobbled section) – making it one way from Queen Street, reversing the existing flow
  • All existing bus stops to be located on one side of Queen Street and Albion Street
  • Bus services to common destinations to be allocated to same or adjacent bus stops
  • Relocate on-street parking to one side of Queen Street and Wellington Street
  • Revision of existing parking restrictions to accommodate new highways arrangements
  • Improvements to crossing points and waiting areas for pedestrians
  • Provision of a dedicated loading bay on Queen Street
  • Car Club parking bay provision on Wellington Street

A complementary scheme involving public realm improvement between the Town Hall and Morrisons is also being developed for the future.

Outcome

Following consultation, a final development plan has been created and works are expected to start in early 2018. For more information please visit the Morley Transport Hub Project Page.
