The West Yorkshire Plus Transport Fund has been created to specifically increase housing, employment and economic growth across the West Yorkshire region. Part of this funding is designated to the ‘A629 Halifax – Huddersfield Corridor’ programme which intends to create an even better place to live, work and visit through major highway corridor junction improvements and multi-modal improvements in and around Halifax Town Centre.
The proposals for the town comprise three key elements:
Upgrade of the eastern corridor (Church Street, Bank Bottom, Berry Lane, Charlestown Road) including developing an ‘Eastern Gateway’ through the creation of a public square and provision of improved pedestrian and cycle facilities from the Rail Station into Halifax Town Centre
Upgrade of the Northern Gateway (Northbridge, Broad Street, Cross Hills) into Halifax Town Centre and extensive public realm improvements in Halifax Town Centre including improvements to Market Street and the reconfiguration of bus movements.
Enhanced Southern and Western Gateways (Wards End, Bull Green, Cow Green) in Halifax Town Centre.
