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 recently held a public engagement exercise to gather people's views about our proposals. Thank you to everyone who took part, we are currently analysing the feedback received and will publish a report summarising the responses when we have it.

You can still view our plans but the engagement period has now closed.

Next steps

Your comments will help inform which proposals form the proposed £13 million scheme, which is to be funded with £12.5 million through the West Yorkshire plus Transport Fund and £500,000 of Section 106 funding.

Subject to consultation feedback, the list of design options will be reviewed and shortlisted and work on the final scheme could start in early 2022.

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