We have objected to this new planning application for Halifax Road – for improvement and widening of the A629). It does not include provision for dedicated cycling paths or alternatives. In part, that was meant to be provided by Phase 4 – but this has been sidelined indefinitely.
Discover the often overlooked aspect of promoting cycling: the crucial need for secure bike parking. Find out how Kirklees Council can lead the way in creating practical, safe, and aesthetically pleasing cycle parking facilities. Join the discussion at Cycle Kirklees’ AGM and share your nominations for the best and worst parking spots in the area.
Committee member, Chris Knight presented Kirklees Active Travel Partnership (KATP) with a draft proposal for an area-wide network encompassing existing and planned routes which was well received by council officers.

About Cycle Kirklees
Cycle Kirklees promotes everyday cycling. We campaign for ‘easier to navigate’ roads and safer routes for cyclists. This, together with cycle training, will encourage more people in Kirklees to use a bike – for travelling to work, school or college, for going shopping, or for leisure, well-being and keeping fit and healthy.
We monitor and comment on local and regional transport strategies and specific road and off-road plans – particularly those aimed at improving cycling and walking.
