Project overview

This scheme looks at the A644 and A653 transport corridors that start in Mirfield, go through Dewsbury and end in Leeds.

We are working in partnership with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Leeds City Council to reduce congestion, reduce travel times, improve air quality and enhance public areas on these routes.

The scheme will also help to promote access to jobs, education and services, and improvements in public health and includes new cycle tracks, new pedestrian crossings and footway improvements, bus lanes and bus super-stops (upgraded bus stops), junction upgrades, and other highway space adjustments.

Have your say

We held a public engagement exercise to gather people's views about our proposals in 2020. We have listened to your views and taken into consideration new government guidance to produce updated drawings.

You can view and provide feedback on these drawings by visiting the Mirfield to Dewsbury to Leeds (M2D2L) Transport Scheme . The consultation will be open from Tuesday 9th November to Tuesday 7th December 2021.

Subject to the consultation feedback, the designs will be updated and work on the final scheme could start late 2022.

Future proposals (subject to funding) along the corridor will consider improvements at other sections of the route.
