Leeds Cycle Improvements – delivering the Leeds Cycling Vision

Please note that this consultation has now closed and the results are being analysed. More information will be provided here when available.

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.
