Residents Kick Back At Quiet Ways Through Lindley

Parts of the proposed Quiet ways alongside the A629 Halifax Road in the Phase 4 programme that started consultations in 2018 has hit organised opposition. Plans have been subject to petitions and online public meetings.
A residents lobby has convened a “live” meeting on Thursday 3rd March to discuss their objections. They are concerned that proposed road space reallocation in Thornhill Road and the creation of a one-way route through Occupation Road (near HRI) will result in more traffic on residential roads.
Kirklees Cycling Campaign (KCC) submitted criticism of some aspects of this route before consultations closed but was not invited by consultants Mott MacDonald to the online meetings – although we applied to attend. Derails of the questions addressed are available on line.
An alternative plan has been prepared by KCC that proposes that Occupation Road is designated as “Vehicle Access only for Residents”.
