We would like to know what you think about our plans to improve walking and cycling links in Pudsey.

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

This engagement is now closed and feedback is being collated. This feedback will be used to update the plans. Subject to funding approval, the construction of this scheme is likely to take place in 2020.
