The East Leeds Orbital Route is Fully Open

We are pleased to see that the much anticipated East Leeds Orbital Route (ELOR) is now open after many years of successful collaboration.

Thorpe Park Leeds has delivered “William Parkin Way” the first section of the ELOR as a key piece of infrastructure connecting north and east Leeds to Junction 46 of the M1, improving the travel time to Leeds Bradford International Airport and beyond.

This road will unlock land for up to 7,000 new homes, with district centres, schools, medical facilities and green space.

Leader of the council, councillor James Lewis and councillor Helen Hayden, executive member for infrastructure and climate officially open the biggest infrastructure project undertaken by Leeds City Council for fifty years, since the completion of the Leeds Inner Ring Road.
