Westgate opens to traffic after gas works

Westgate will reopen to traffic this morning after 10 weeks of gas works.

A stretch of the road, running from Greenside to Hightown Road in Cleckheaton, had been closed since June, but will reopen early to accommodate traffic.

While only one lane will be open, temporary traffic lights have been installed to manage the traffic flow, with work expected to finish completely on Friday.

The scheduled works on Bradford Road, Cleckheaton, will start next Monday. See Friday’s Spenborough Guardian for more details.
