A629 Phase 5 Ainley Top to Huddersfield

This £120m package of schemes along the A629 corridor between Halifax and Huddersfield is designed to speed up public transport and car journeys along the route, unlock key development sites and deliver improved facilities for cycling and walking.

Planned measures include highway widening, remodelling junctions and signals, improved public transport including a new bus rail interchange and new cycling and walking infrastructure.

Phase 5 of the scheme will see measures to reduce congestion and speed up journey times for all A629 users between Huddersfield ring road and Ainley Top roundabout.

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