Transport projects

Improvement schemes and projects currently being undertaken by West Yorkshire Combined Authority

The West Yorkshire Combined Authority is delivering a programme of transport schemes projects designed to increase housing, employment and inclusive economic growth across the Leeds City Region.

Having good local and regional transport links encourages business development and creates new jobs. For this reason, the Combined Authority is investing in projects that will reduce congestion, improve the flow of freight and make it easier for people to commute to and from major employment growth areas as well as education and training opportunities.

What do we deliver?

  • Quicker journey through highway improvements and public transport developments.
  • Reduced congestion and air pollution through upgrades to highways and increased use of better public transport.
  • More access to good-quality jobs through improvements that encourage more people to use public transport and active travel as well as benefiting car users.
  • Through our projects, we provide economic benefits and health benefits to the region.

What are our projects?

  • New and expanded highways facilitating development, inclusive economic growth and jobs, especially in deprived areas.
  • Improved access corridors and junctions for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles.
  • Enhanced provision of parking at rail stations, and greater investment in public transport infrastructure.

To deliver these schemes successfully, the Combined Authority is working in partnership with the five West Yorkshire partner councils and City of York Council.

We have already completed a number of successful transport projects that are reducing congestion, speeding up journeys and opening up land for new businesses and housing.
