These routes have been proposed as an alternative walking and cycle route to the A629 (Halifax Road) which provides a direct and relatively easy-gradient route for cyclists traveling between Ainley Top and Huddersfield Town Centre.
A629 Wakefield Road is the major route connecting Huddersfield to its environs with the most potential for increased active travel, particularly if better onward links to other destinations are added.
Access improvements to Huddersfield railway station are clearly needed. We support many of the Huddersfield Connections (Walking & Cycling) proposals but they are only part of the wider issue of access to the town centre as a whole.
Cycle Kirklees submission on Dewsbury town centre supports many of the improvements proposed within the town centre, which we have since discussed with officers.

Cycle Kirtklees appeared at the Public Inquiry into the TransPennine upgrade (Huddersfield to Westtown, Dewsbury) to make the case for improved access for cyclists and pedestrians in the expanded Huddersfield station.
