Between 16 September – 14 October 2019, we held a public engagement on the proposed Pudsey Walking and Cycling Links scheme.

All feedback received during the engagement has been analysed and used to develop the scheme.

We have now published an engagement report, outlining the feedback we received, and a 'You Said, We Did' document, which highlights how the feedback was used to inform the scheme. You can access both reports the documents section.


Background

The New Pudsey railway station is located some distance away from the town of Pudsey, with Stanningley Bypass running in between the town and its railway station. Direct walking and cycling routes are therefore limited and may not be easy to find and follow.

The scheme seeks to address this by improving the quality of walking and cycling routes through widening and re-surfacing some paths, improving crossing points and adding clear signage to make wayfinding straightforward and reliable. This will improve access from residential areas of Pudsey and the town centre to the railway station, with frequent connections to Leeds, Bradford and the Calder valley.

The proposals for this location are:

  • To raise awareness of safe and convenient routes from Pudsey town centre to New Pudsey rail station for pedestrians and cyclists and to make the routes legible and easy to follow by introducing additional wayfinding signs
  • To enhance some of the local footpaths to maximise the potential to use direct links and make walking to the railway station a pleasant experience
  • To enhance cycling links to the railway station and the cycle superhighway by creating a signed on-road cycle route and provide additional/ improved traffic-free linkages
  • To look at opportunities to enhance crossing points to make walking and cycling routes as direct and easy to follow as possible.

Next steps

Following the engagement exercise, construction will begin in January 2021. Please continue to check the project page for further updates, and please let us know if you have any additional questions.
