Have your say on cycling, walking and bus travel improvements

Local people are being invited to find out more and have their say about plans for the fourth project in the £120m A629 improvement programme, between Halifax and Huddersfield.

The project complements the work of the other stages of the A629 improvement scheme being delivered by Calderdale and Kirklees Councils, by improving walking, cycling and bus travel along the corridor. The improvements will also enable local growth and reduce journey times.

Plans include the creation of a quality bus corridor, with improved bus stops and real time information, creating the opportunity for bus operators to introduce an express service between Huddersfield and Halifax. Junction improvements will also reduce congestion and increase capacity at Ainley Top and West Vale.

Cycling and walking opportunities will also be transformed, with new and improved routes, and better links to key destinations, such as hospitals, Halifax and Elland rail stations, and Elland, Huddersfield and Halifax town centres. These routes will include off-highway green routes and on highway cycle infrastructure.
