Closure of A61 at Harewood Bridge from 19.00hrs Monday 21st November 2022 for Essential Repairs

Serious issues with the road surface on Harewood Bridge have led to an urgent requirement to carry out substantial repairs tonight.

The A61 will be closed from 19.00hrs this evening with the intention of it being open again before 05.00hrs on Tuesday morning. The diversion will be via the A659 Arthington Lane and A658 Harrogate Road.

The works tonight will also allow the structures team to inspect the bridge to determine the underlying reason for the failure of the surfacing and to plan works to minimise future problems.
