Commuters have been warned to expect delays during tomorrow morning’s rush hour.
Emergency roadworks on the A638, close to Halfords and under the railway bridge, means drivers will not be able to turn right onto Kirkgate / Doncaster Road (A61) from 7am.
Instead traffic will be diverted along Ings Road and Kirkgate.
Wakefield Council said the roadworks are needed to replace traffic lights.
But they said they hoped that the work will be finished before Tuesday’s evening rush hour.
