Transport improvements and initiatives

It is vital that Calderdale has a strong and sustainable local transport system.

20mph speed limit

Over three years (2015 to 2017) the Council is introducing 20mph speed limits in many residential areas of Calderdale.

A629 Improvements

Plans for a road scheme to ease congestion on the A629 between Jubilee Road and the junction with Free School Lane in Halifax worth up to £4.5 million.

A646 Burnley Road Speed Limit

We are reducing the speed limit on the length of the A646 Burnley Road, Luddendenfoot between the junction with Ewood Drive, Mytholmroyd and Rock Cliffe Mount, Luddendenfoot. The speed limit will be reduced from 50mph to 40 mph.

Battinson Road speed reduction

The Council intend to introduce measures to reduce vehicle speeds and numbers on Battinson Road.

Calderdale Next Chapter

Building on our heritage, fine architecture, vibrant business sector and strong communities, we are working with collaborators and partners to improve Calderdale. The next chapter for Calderdale will see major investments in transport, public spaces and business premises.

Department for Transport funding

Local Highway Authorities receive funding from the Department for Transport each year to carry out highway maintenance - see details of work that has been carried out and work planned.

Greetland Road speed limit

The B6113 has been listed on the Council's 'sites for concern' programme, after 11 reported accidents occurred in the years 2009 to 2014; two of the accidents resulted in a fatality. The current speed limit on this length of road is 50mph.

Halifax Town Centre Bus Accessibility Study 2015

AECOM was appointed by Calderdale Council to assess the impact of changes to accessibility to Halifax town centre in response to possible changes affecting bus routes. To complement wider improvements to the town centre planned under the West Yorkshire plus Transport Fund, a package of bus service changes has been proposed.

Halifax Town Centre Parking Strategy

Halifax town centre needs a Parking Strategy to support the ambitions set out in the Halifax Town Centre Delivery Plan. The Parking Strategy complements the Calderdale Transport Strategy and aligns with wider transport and access improvements being delivered through the West Yorkshire plus Transport Fund.

It is cognisant of wider strategic objectives locally, regionally, nationally and globally. These include improving air quality, increasing physical activity, supporting economic activity and reducing our impact on the environment.
