Leeds Bradford International Airport Link Route

A new route is proposed to give more direct access to the airport from the South, linking in to the A65 North of the outer ring road.

This is intended to create better connections and maximise the role of public transport access and other sustainable travel modes to support a step change in travel behaviours and to unlock the economic benefits of the North West Leeds Employment Hub.

By improving sustainable and active travel connections in the area, the council aims to unlock investment and inclusive growth opportunities and encourage more people to walk, cycle and use public transport.
