Connecting Leeds is our ambition to improve travel in Leeds for people who live, work in and visit the city.

About the project

The East Leeds Orbital Route (ELOR) is a key part of the East Leeds Extension, to create a major strategic growth area for the city.

The first phase of ELOR was completed in December 2019.  This has seen improvements at a number of the existing Outer Ring Road Junctions . The design for the main ELOR was completed in summer 2020.  Leeds City Council have been working with construction partner Balfour Beatty to complete the first two phases.

Works commenced on the construction of the main ELOR in January 2020.  The works are due to be completed by Autumn 2022.

The East Leeds Orbital Route is the biggest infrastructure project undertaken by Leeds City Council for fifty years, since the completion of the Leeds Inner Ring Road.

We have listened carefully to the voices of local communities and stakeholders to make sure the plans for ELOR reflect the needs and aspirations of those who will be impacted by the development.

It will ease congestion in existing residential areas across Cross Gates, Seacroft, Whitkirk and also play a key role in the growth plans for the city for years to come.
