In November 2018 we ran a public engagement to gather people's feedback and views about the scheme - thanks to everyone who took part. The project is now being developed to Full Business Case (FBC) stage which includes detailed design following the engagement. We are expecting to submit the FBC to West Yorkshire Combined Authority (who are funding this work) in March 2019. If it is approved, we will then tender for contractors to do the work and announce the start date.

Project overview

Congestion, slow journey times and poor air quality are currently problems along the A62 Leeds Road in Huddersfield. We are working with West Yorkshire Combined Authority to make improvements along the A62, specifically the section between Huddersfield ring round and Old Fieldhouse Lane.

The improvements include big changes at the gyratory outside the Great Northern Street retail park, to remove the complicated system and replace it with a simpler design.

The A62 proposals form part of a wider programme of transport improvements across West Yorkshire, being delivered under the West Yorkshire 'Plus' Transport Fund.
