City Connect Phase 3: Clay Pit Lane, Dewsbury Road, Elland Road Cycleways

Executive Board is asked to approve the delivery of three cycling schemes in Leeds, forming part of the City Connect 3 proposals. Leeds has submitted an Outline Business Case (OBC) to the Combined Authority for the provision of segregated cycling facilities on Claypit Lane, Dewsbury Road and Elland Road. The OBC was successful and the project is progressing toward the Full Business Case (FBC). The funding for the schemes will come as part of the WY+Transport Fund through the City Connect programme. The schemes form part of the wider ambition to develop Leeds Cycle Network and will close some of the key gaps in the existing and upcoming cycling infrastructure.
