Work set to begin on £200m Yorkshire transport schemes
13 new Leeds City Region transport schemes with an investment value of over £200m are set to begin work this financial year.
Work will start on a range of projects including the corridor improvement project at the Dyneley Arms junction in Leeds, improvements to the Kirkgate roundabout in Wakefield city centre and the next phase of outer ring road improvements in York.
Work supporting rail stations throughout the region is also set to start, with Garforth and Mytholmroyd as two of six West Yorkshire rail stations where park and ride car parks are being built or extended.
Cllr Peter Box, chair of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority Investment Committee commented: “Each of our schemes is carefully identified and developed according to rigorous assessment processes and it is exciting to see that hard work turning into activity on the ground.
“These schemes are about helping local people access jobs and opportunities, enabling our businesses to prosper and expand and opening up land for much-needed new housing and development.
“They will ensure the region can take full advantage of planned major national transport investments, when they arrive.”
