There’s improved city centre pedestrian and cycling infrastructure on the horizon in Leeds – and there’s still chance for you to have your say.
The work proposed by the council is set to affect Merrion Street, Great George Street and the bottom of Call Lane.
Great George Street, Merrion Street, The Calls and Kirkgate where, between 2013-2022, 62 casualties have occurred.
Would you like more cycling lanes around the city centre? Or can’t face the thought of more disruption to your morning commute? Any and all feedback is welcomed for @leedscouncil’s Leeds City Links consultation closes on Sunday.
The plans propose to ‘make it safe for people walking, using wheelchairs, mobility scooters, travelling with a pram or pushchair, or cycling around the city centre through creating safer crossings, pavement widening and introducing better connected cycle tracks’.
Tracy Brabin, Mayor of West Yorkshire, said: “A reliable and inclusive transport network, which prioritises walking, cycling and public transport, is key to our plans for a stronger and better-connected region.
“This scheme is part of a multi-million-pound package of investment to help us achieve that.
“Your opinion matters, so please make the most of this opportunity to have your say and shape the proposals.”
