Consultations: improvements for walking and cycling in Halifax

A couple of new consultations which were launched on 15 March regarding proposed improvements for walking and cycling in West Halifax and North Halifax. Calderdale Council, in partnership with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, is working to develop two projects in Halifax as part of the Leeds City Region ‘Transforming Cities Fund’ programme. These projects are:

North Halifax Improved Streets for People: This project aims to make walking and cycling easier and safer, and improve access between North Halifax and Halifax town centre. Improving facilities for cycling and walking will help people get to places more easily in North Halifax, including shops, workplaces, health centres and schools. Improved walkways, crossing places and changes to the street to reduce traffic speeds also aim to encourage people to walk more.

West Halifax Improved Streets for People: This project aims to deliver improvements to walking in West Halifax which will benefit residents, businesses and visitors alike. Options being considered include traffic calming measures, and general improvements to pavements and public space, which will help make streets in West Halifax greener, healthier and more attractive.

They will be asking people for their feedback on the latest designs from today Monday 15 March 2021 until Sunday 25 April 2021.  You can view the current proposals, read more about the project and tell them what you think by completing their consultation surveys, which you can access by following the links to the online consultation pages below:
