What the Transforming Cities Fund (TCF) programme means for Wakefield

Communities across Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York are set to benefit from TCF schemes, which include new or improved bus and rail stations, cycling and walking infrastructure, and new Park and Rides.

In Wakefield, TCF schemes will:

  • Transform Wakefield city centre by reducing traffic in the Northern and Civic Quarters, as well as enhancing cycling and walking routes.
  • Include a cycle route between Wakefield Kirkgate Rail Station towards the town centre and improved access to Wakefield Bus Station for people travelling on foot.
  • Provide new bus priority and cycling and walking infrastructure on the A61 and A639 corridors, improving journey between Leeds and Wakefield.
