Leeds Cycle Improvements – delivering the Leeds Cycling Vision


Have your say: 12 August – 29 September 2019

The West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s CityConnect programme is delivering improvements to cycling and walking infrastructure and routes across the region. Working in partnership with councils across West Yorkshire and York, we are aiming to enable and encourage more people to make more every day journeys by bike and on foot.

To deliver a wide range of transport improvements the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s CityConnect programme is seeking £12million funding through the West Yorkshire-plus Transport Fund, and the Leeds City Region Growth Deal – a £1billion package of Government investment through the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP), delivered by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority to accelerate growth and create jobs across Leeds City Region.

Connecting Leeds

Connecting Leeds is the long-term transport strategy for Leeds, aiming to improve all aspects of transport and travel in the city and connect people to the wider Leeds City Region. The goal is to create a people focussed, healthy city that is well connected and accessible to everyone. Improving public transport and walking and cycling facilities is key to increasing sustainable travel and improving air quality in the city.

Inspiring people to cycle more often is the vision of Leeds Cycling Ambition, which aims to ensure that Leeds is a vibrant and accessible city for cycling by as many people as possible.

Clay Pit Lane Cycle Improvements

Proposals to improve cycle provision on Clay Pit Lane will provide a convenient and direct link from routes in east and north east Leeds, to the Universities and Civic Quarter in Leeds City Centre.

Proposed improvements include:

  • upgrading the existing cycle route heading north bound with a fully 0.7km segregated route
  • building a new 0.8km segregated route between Meanwood Road and the Inner Ring Road on the south bound section.
  • Improve facilities through existing junctions

These improvements aim to:

  • Make cycling a convenient and accessible choice for people travelling in and out of the city from locations in north and north east Leeds
  • Improve Leeds cycle network, by providing a safe, segregated route which links directly into the north of the city centre, from existing routes along Meanwood Road
  • Connect people working and studying in city centre education establishments, with residential areas in Meanwood and Headingley

We are also consulting on plans to improve walking and cycling access in South Leeds on Dewsbury Road and Elland Road, which you can find out about here.
