Corridor Improvement Programme Phase 2

The Corridor Improvement Programme (CIP) is a programme of low and medium cost highway interventions on strategic highway corridors on the Key Route Network (KRN).

CIP aims to deliver benefits for all road users with an emphasis on reducing journey times, in order to improve connectivity and accessibility to economic growth sites including those located in spatial priority areas.  The aim is also to improve air quality and contribute towards tackling the climate emergency.

Phase 2 of the CIP is to undertake feasibility work to consider wider corridor interventions and strategy development in order to identify further measures to build on the benefits achieved through Phase 1.

8 schemes are now being taken forward under Phase 2 of the programme.

  3. Leeds - A660 Headingley Hill

    The A660 is one of the most congested corridors in Leeds. It experiences high traffic flows as well as seeing some of the highest volumes of pedestrians and cyclists, often competing for road space with HGVs and more than 60 buses per hour at peak times. Initially included under the Leeds Public Transport Investment Programme (LPTIP), the proposed A660 Headingley Hill scheme is located between Orville Gardens and St Michaels Road; a section of the corridor more commonly known as Headingley Hill. The scheme now forms part of the Corridor Improvement Programme.
