Leeds Liverpool Canal
A high-quality cycling and walking route will be created on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, enhancing the CityConnect schemes that use the canal towpaths as a traffic free, flat, and attractive alternative to the main roads.
This scheme aims to deliver a high-quality cycling and walking route along the towpath between Apperley Bridge and Shipley on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal. This scheme will build upon previous and proposed CityConnect scheme improvements by upgrading towpaths, increasing the width of the path for cyclists and pedestrians in addition to providing a durable all-weather surface.
This scheme is expected to achieve the following outputs:
- unlock 2km of road/cycleway/walkways to promote active travel
