Calderdale Council submits plans for £6.9 million highway works programme

A £6.9m programme of works to improve and maintain some of West Yorkshire’s roads and paths is recommended for approval at a council meeting later.

The scheme is earmarked for towns and villages in Calderdale including Halifax, Brighouse, Hebden Bridge, Illingworth, Holmfield and Sowerby, reports the BBC.

It includes £3.17m for road maintenance and £1.74m to help maintain structures including bridges. Councillors have also been asked to approve work to tackle potholes.

The Local Democracy Reporting Service reports that under the £6.9m City Region Sustainable Transport Settlement (CRSTS) plan for this financial year, £500,000 has been allocated for footway maintenance and £540,000 for other schemes such as pavement “furniture” decluttering, said the BBC report.

It will also include £440,000 for the council’s Safer Roads programme such as speed management projects, 20 miles per hour zones and a pedestrian crossing initiative, £190,000 for schemes promoting walking, cycling and use of public transport, and £350,000 for signalling and other network needs.

A £780,000 fund to fix potholes is expected to come via West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s £6.49m grant.
