Was on that road this morning going to Harrogate and was surprised it was still open. The volume of water that has been coming off that banking over the past 2 weeks was very heavy. Good move to make on safety grounds, quite a detour for H.G.V.

Ilkley gas works have been postponed due to the A59 being shut:

The traffic lights there are for a sewer which has collapsed due to the flooding.

The side road round the closure was closed as well by the time I got to it - had to come back via patley bridge and dude to the state of the roads grassington and skipton. Not good!!! There are still road works in Ikley and Huby!

according to t&a, gas works in Ilkley only postponed until collapsed sewer is fixed, it does not mention the A59 as being a reason

I think the traffic through Silsden has declined slightly since this road was closed, as in not queued at tea time to the roundabout as often. It will be interesting to see if it picks up when the road re-opens.
