The proposals:

The West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s CityConnect programme is currently developing plans for a £210,000 scheme to improve walking and cycling links in Dewsbury town centre, aimed at encouraging more people to travel on foot and by bike.

The purpose of the scheme, which is being delivered in partnership with Kirklees Council, is to make it easier for people to travel on foot and by bike to Dewsbury Rail Station via the Eightlands Road access point.

Wider pavements with improved surfacing, better crossings and street lighting, 20mph zone and a new cycle route are among the proposals.

The plans are available to view in the Documents section on this page.

Last year, the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Kirklees Council were awarded funding for this scheme from the government’s Transforming Cities Fund Early Wins.

Improving cycling and walking infrastructure in the City Region is at the heart of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s successful Transforming Cities Fund (TCF) bid.

Next steps:

Between Monday 16 March and Monday 13 April 2020 a period of public engagement took place on these proposals, giving you an opportunity to tell us what you thought before the project moves forward. This engagement has now closed and your feedback is being analysed. More information will be displayed here when available.
