The City of York Council and the West Yorkshire Combined Authority are proposing a series of walking, cycling and bus improvements along the Tadcaster Road which they hope will help provide “a more attractive, safer and convenient route for all”.
The scheme will be funded by the Leeds City Region Transforming Cities Fund which aims to help create a positive change in the way people travel across the region, “providing an accessible, attractive, and cleaner alternative to car journeys”.
In addition to funding to deliver walking, cycling and bus improvements, City of York Council has secured additional funding from the Department of Transport’s Local Highways Maintenance Challenge Fund to carry out essential maintenance and improvements to the drainage, lighting and the surfaces of the road and pavements. Both schemes are proposed to be delivered at the same time so that disruption to residents, businesses and the users of Tadcaster Road can be minimised and overall costs reduced.
It’s launched a consultation into the plans.
