A641 Bradford – Brighouse – Huddersfield

The A641 Bradford – Brighouse – Huddersfield corridor is an important manufacturing corridor that forms part of the West Yorkshire Key Route Network.

Carrying more than 20,000 vehicles a day, the corridor suffers with traffic congestion issues in a number of locations, particularly on its approaches into Brighouse town centre.

Benefits

  • Deliver significant journey time reliability benefits;
  • Improve accessibility to key growth areas for housing and employment and facilitating economic development in the three districts (Calderdale, Kirklees and Bradford);
  • Reduce congestion and improve journey time reliability on the A641/A644 for all modes to facilitate economic development;
  • Increase the availability and use of sustainable transport modes (bus, cycle, walk);
  • Improve public transport facilities and priorities;
  • Safeguard and enhance the natural and built environment; and
  • Delivered in cooperation with the adjacent investment projects managed by both Kirklees Council and Bradford Council.

Progress

We are currently in the pre-feasibility prioritisation (scoping) stage of the project to identify the range, type and location of interventions required along the corridor in order to achieve the potential benefits.
