Wakefield Eastern Relief Road
The Wakefield Eastern Relief Road is a newly constructed single carriageway highway between the A638 Doncaster Road to the South and the A642 Aberford Road to the North.
The Wakefield Eastern Relief Road (WERR) has opened up substantial job creation by providing direct access into the East Wakefield employment growth area for residents across Wakefield.
The road acts as an alternative route around the city centre and will therefore reduce congestion and increase accessibility. Providing this additional highway capacity will improve conditions for bus services, pedestrians and cyclists and open up further opportunities to provide complementary sustainable transport measures within and to the Lower Kirkgate area. It will also help to accommodate future development traffic in the East of the district.
