Project overview

The Cooper Bridge area of Kirklees suffers from major congestion, particularly during peak times. To address slow journey times and poor air quality we are working with West Yorkshire Combined Authority to make several big improvements in that area.

Because we need such a big change in that area we are currently considering a number of different options. Each option is slightly different, but they all include a new link road.

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