Transport Projects

Improvement schemes and projects currently being undertaken by West Yorkshire Combined Authority.

West Yorkshire Combined Authority is developing a programme of schemes that increase housing, employment and economic growth across the Leeds City Region.

These include:

  • new and expanded highways facilitating development, economic growth and jobs, especially in deprived areas;
  • improved access corridors and junctions for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles;
  • enhanced provision of parking at rail stations and greater investment in public transport infrastructure. 

Good local and regional transport links underpin the development of business and the creation of new jobs. For this reason, the West Yorkshire Combined Authority will be using funding targeted at reducing congestion, improving the flow of freight and making it easier for people to commute to and from expected major growth areas.

Successful projects will reduce journey times, alleviate congestion and improve air quality. They will provide people living in more deprived areas with better access to jobs by car and by public transport. The Combined Authority's Delivery team is working in partnership with the officers in the five West Yorkshire districts and York to deliver the wide range of schemes.

A number of transport projects are already helping to reduce congestion, speed up journeys and open up land for new businesses and housing. These are the Wakefield Eastern Relief Road and the 1,000-space Temple Green Park and Ride.
