Customers all over both mate.

Ok getting in and out of Leeds at rush hour is a pig as so much goes down the M621. I currently work in the centre and traffic is incredibly quiet as most gets directed round the loop roads.

 

Depends where you are coming from but going up the M61 and then across on the M65 and into Yorkshire via Colne ain’t the worst idea for meetings in the Skipton/Ilkley area.

 

If you could plan your day to start Bradford side and work across would easier.

 

The never ending roadworks on the 62 actually mean the traffic might be slow but keeps going. However as soon as any type of accident it goes to shut very quickly.

Thanks Ani. Haven't seen my list yet but I'll work it out from there. I'd be jumping on the motorway from kearsley so will be mainly m62 depending on where I'm going

 

 

consider 66 from heap bridge then 65 then on through colne and keighley

 

 

rule of thumb 5 years back was pass brighouse by 7.27

 

and that was for bradford

 

to do that i reckon you leave yours at 640

 

sounds shit to me

I’ve to be in Leeds city centre for a 9am tomorrow

 

Can’t see anything other than a 6am start getting me there in good time from Chorley

 

I usually do the M65, grain road, M66 then M62 but might swerve the grain road if temperatures drop

 

Currently pissing it down on the Grane road.

Slightly off topic but saw yesterday traffic lights are going up at end of slip road from northbound M6 to m62 east.

 

Don't think I've ever been in bad congestion there, bit of a strange plan especially as one lane from slip road becomes m62 inside lane.

I would seriously consider getting as far as Sutton via Colne and train from there.

I was doing it 5 year back so car vouch for that.

 

Yes it is pretty shit as I can currently start in Bolton at 9:30am.

 

Some benefits to balance the negatives though.

 

I'm hoping a year maximum

I will be in central Leeds tomorrow too but happily got a pm meeting. Got to get to Brum by 6pm for a reunion christmas night out so not looking forward to battling the M6 at rush hour

M1 m42 might be quicker.

 

But can also be a nightmare

Sutton looks a nice little place.

It is. Classed as North Yorkshire so Skipton rather than Keighlry for schools.

 

Just over the border and with a hospital nearby so both sides used to send gritters out at winter so never cut off.

 

Easy to get to the match as well via M65.
