Multi-million pound transport projects are making Leeds more sustainable and better connected
Leeds lies at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse, with the railway station being one of the busiest transport hubs in the North.
Major improvements are underway as part of a £46.1m scheme to transform Leeds City Station’s entrance, accommodating future passenger growth and betters connecting people with the city.
We are now more than halfway through an ambitious £10 billion regeneration programme, delivered with and for our people, including major transport infrastructure.
Our transport solutions are helping to create a city where cars aren’t a necessity, by investing in the long-term sustainability of our transport services. We are bringing more bus priority corridors, more than 20km of cycle superhighways, low-emission buses, more than 2,000 new park and ride spaces and the UK’s first solar powered park and ride site
Our city centre infrastructure is transforming, with a focus on key gateways, public realm and people-first design. At the same time we are creating a better connected city, with interlinked neighbourhoods and an easily accessible city centre which encourages people to walk, cycle and be more active.
Alongside the transformation of Leeds City Station and the delivery of a new railway station at Kirkstall Forge, there are planned stations at White Rose, Thorpe Park, and near to Leeds Bradford Airport.
These infrastructure enhancements are contributing to the city’s wider regeneration, unlocking new developments, economic areas and creating future investment opportunities.
As the vision for mass transit across our city and region continues to take shape, we will ensure that it is integrated instinctively with our city, contributing to our inclusive growth ambitions.
