The Leeds Inner Ring Road at night

It's been a while since I've submitted a PotM nomination, and a while since we've had an '...... at night' submission. So here is the Leeds Inner Ring Road at night - taken from the Woodhouse Lane car park looking east - taken just after the conclusion of the SABRE Leeds Awayday in January 2004.

Taken January 2004 just following the SABRE Leeds Awayday - thought I'd give it another try.

Looking eastward from the A61 flyover. the M62 is unlit here, and ferrybridge power station can be seen on the hills in the distance.

The cycle lane here is quite useful. The problem is whichever moron put a direction sign directly behind a bollard on two foot poles.

Leeds - 04 - City Square cycle lane

Another shot of that bit - how very twee. The only cyclist I've ever seen using all this joined the road, ignoring the cycle lights and bypassing this bit of track. I wonder how much all this cost.

Leeds - 02 - City Square cycle lane

One of the exits from the cycle lane around City Square. I'm all for improving access for all modes of transport, but this is ugly, obtrusive and completely unused. It's a cycle lane for the sake of building a cycle lane.

Leeds - 06 - City Centre Loop Sign

A standard direction sign on the Loop. There shouldn't be two different font sizes for directions here, but what stands out more is a blue motorway patch with no road number in it.

Leeds - 03 - City Square cycle lane

The top end of the cycle lane where it heads up Park Row. Do the traffic lights have to be huge full size ones? They look ridiculous

Leeds - 01 - Old tram line pole

One of the surviving ones that became streetlights in the 60's. Many Leeds radials used to have these, most memorably the A63 up Halton Hill and the A660 through Headingley. These few cling on at Calverley Street, near the University campus

The south portal of the tunnel, which takes its name from the now demolished Matthew Murray School. The tunnel was built specifically to shield the school from the intrusion and noise of the Ingram Road Distributor, A643, which feeds traffic from the M621 Motorway into the city centre of Leeds.
