West Yorkshire Plus Transport Fund

Funding secured by the LEP and West Yorkshire Combined Authority through the Leeds City Region Growth Deal in 2014 has enabled the establishment of a £1billion West Yorkshire plus Transport Fund, covering West Yorkshire and York.

The Transport Fund is targeted at enabling key development areas and will help to create about 20,000 new jobs over the next 10 years. A number of strategic transport projects will be delivered to facilitate growth identified in the SEP, which encompass:

  • Improved motorway access
  • Orbital road improvements
  • Radial improvements on corridors for better public transport options into our urban centres
  • Road and rail improvements between district hubs to provide capacity and better connectivity
  • Enhanced rail station gateways with increased car parking capacity for park and ride.
