Connectivity Infrastructure Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We have a CLEAR vision for transport in West Yorkshire.

For us, planning for West Yorkshire’s transport future is about where we arrive. Our vision for transport goes beyond getting people from A to B. It’s about getting all of us – our people, our communities, our businesses – to where we want to be as a region.

And it’s about getting there in the best way possible. Whether you travel for work and want to discover brilliant new opportunities, or simply seek to enjoy more of our beautiful region, or meet up with the ones you love, we want our transport system to make it happen.

We are seeking views on the transport plans we are developing to turn this vision into reality.

Our transport plans

We want to make our transport system much easier, both to use and to understand. So easy in fact that taking quick, joined-up journeys through walking and cycling and public transport becomes second nature for us all.

We have identified a range of options, informed by our evidence, to create an integrated network bringing walking and cycling, rail, bus and a new mass transit system together.

Our Connectivity Infrastructure Plan sets out a long-term transport infrastructure investment programme for the next 20 years, providing a picture of where improvements are most needed to enhance people’s quality of life and bring investment to the area.

It is built on detailed evidence on the role different types of transport can play:

Our Connectivity Infrastructure Plan is a starting point, not an end and we want your views on how we develop these proposals further.

Have your say

We want to hear your feedback on our Connectivity Infrastructure Plan. Are we focusing on the right priorities, and vision for Connectivity? Please complete the short survey here.


We also want to hear if you think we are focusing on the right areas to connect. Have your say on the interactive map where you can add your own suggestions of places to connect across West Yorkshire.


What happens next?

This Plan, and your feedback on it, is an important early stage in choosing options for our future investment priorities.

We are engaging on these initial proposals now. Responding to engagement feedback, we will review and re-shape our plan in Summer 2021. We will also consider government spending announcements and any further developments for transport investment.

We will then progress the scheme details and estimate costs. This will have further rounds of engagement and evaluation, becoming more rigorous as we move from a long list of options to a preferred option that would be delivered.
