Brighouse A6025 Reconstruction

Reconstruction of the A6025 Park Road, which was closed due to a landslip caused by flooding, and which prevented access to the proposed Elland Rail Station, housing sites, and restricted access to the town centre.

Project Scope

Repairs will be made to repair damage caused by a landslip in February 2020 on Park Road (A6025) near Halifax in Calderdale, and fully restore the road to its previous state and operation. The landslip of approximately 500m in length was caused by heavy rain and flooding from Storm Ciara forcing a full road closure to all through-traffic between Elland and Brighouse, and access to various residential homes, commercial properties, and recreational areas along its length.

The reopening of this road will alleviate congestion and delays along other routes significantly reduce journey times for all road users as well as reinstating a bus route.  It will also restore access to existing residential properties, civic services, amenity and leisure facilities, public open space and commercial properties located on Park Road.

 

Outputs

This scheme is expected to achieve the following outputs:

  • Unlock 0.5kms of highway currently closed to traffic re-connecting the key West Yorkshire region growth areas of Elland and Brighouse.
  • Reduce CO2 emissions by 55,788 tonnes over a 60-year period following the scheme’s opening.
  • Create 34 new construction jobs
