A629 Halifax to Huddersfield

The A629 Halifax to Huddersfield Corridor Improvement is the largest individual scheme within the West Yorkshire-plus Transport Fund.

The £120m package of schemes along the A629 corridor between Halifax and Huddersfield is driving economic growth by addressing transport and accessibility issues.

The project complements the work of the other stages of the A629 improvement scheme being delivered by Calderdale and Kirklees Councils, by improving walking, cycling and bus travel along the corridor. The improvements will also enable local growth and reduce journey times.

Plans include the creation of a quality bus corridor, with improved bus stops and real time information, creating the opportunity for bus operators to introduce an express service between Huddersfield and Halifax. Junction improvements will also reduce congestion and increase capacity at Ainley Top and West Vale.

Cycling and walking opportunities will also be transformed, with new and improved routes, and better links to key destinations, such as hospitals, Halifax and Elland rail stations, and Elland, Huddersfield and Halifax town centres. These routes will include off-highway green routes and on highway cycle infrastructure.
