A1M upgrades & country's first carbon neutral motoring station enhance Wetherby as an area to buy and rent

The ongoing upgrade to the A1M at Wetherby and the opening of the country's first carbon neutral motoring service station at Kirk Deighton have further enhanced Wetherby as an area to buy and rent property. The improved road networks will provide considerable benefits to local residents through the addition of local access roads to and from Wetherby reducing congestion both on the A1 and in the villages.

The ongoing upgrade to the A1M at Wetherby and the opening of the country's first carbon neutral motoring service station at Kirk Deighton have further enhanced Wetherby as an area to buy and rent property. The improved road networks will provide considerable benefits to local residents through the addition of local access roads to and from Wetherby reducing congestion both on the A1 and in the villages. The new roads will be particularly significant in reducing traffic through the villages of Thorner and Bramham. These villages already popular for renting will no longer be accessible directly from the A1 and will therefore be quieter, less polluted, more family friendly locations to choose to live. The timing of the opening of these new roads is also ideal in light of the influx of traffic expected to the area for major local events such as Bramham International Horse Trials and the Leeds Festival.

The widening of the A1 itself will also improve the road as a major artery for commuters up and down the country. The close proximity and ease of access to the A1 to the villages covered by the Wetherby office of Linley and Simpson is frequently cited by prospective tenants as one of their main reasons for choosing to rent locally.

The new services will also improve local amenities to residents and will include shops, restaurants, a picnic area and a petrol station. The Wetherby branch has already noticed the impact of the services on the local area by letting a number of properties to employees moving specifically to the area for the job opportunities on offer.'
