Have your say on planned walking and cycling improvements between Halifax and Huddersfield

Local people are being invited to find out more and have their say about plans for the fourth phase of the A629 improvement programme between Halifax and Huddersfield.

The project is funded by over £25million from the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s West Yorkshire-plus Transport Fund and complements the work of the other stages of the A629 improvement scheme being delivered by Calderdale and Kirklees Councils.

The A629 Phase 4 Walking and Cycling Halifax – Huddersfield scheme aims to improve walking, cycling and bus travel in a broad area around the A629, as well as enabling better access for those using wheelchairs, scooters or mobility aids and those travelling with prams or pushchairs. The scheme will also support the local economy and reduce journey times between Halifax and Huddersfield.

The latest plans for the scheme are now available to view at www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/a629-halifax-hudds  and local people are asked to share their feedback on the designs, which have been refined since the previous consultation in 2019.

The consultation runs until Tuesday 23 November 2021 and the feedback received will be used to refine proposals before a contractor is appointed to build the scheme. It’s hoped that construction can begin in 2022.
