Wakefield City Centre by WYCAThis consultation by Wakefield Council and West Yorkshire Combined Authority is on plans to transform travel in Wakefield city centre. The £13.6m project aims to increase footfall to benefit the tourism, retail and hospitality sectors, increase employment prospects, alleviate congestion, improve air quality and reliability of bus journeys, provide a new cycle lane to link the railway stations to key amenities, employment and education hubs and enhance streetscapes among other things. The areas proposed for change are:

  • A61 South of Kirkgate Gyratory,
  • Lower Warrengate to Kirkgate Station,
  • Northgate, Marsh Way and Access to Bus Station, and
  • Peterson Road and Stanley Road.
  • Westgate Station, Mulberry Way and Wood Street (North),
  • Wood Street (South), Bull Ring and Northgate to The Springs.

Full details of the proposals and a questionnaire are online at https://www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/wakefield-city-centre. The consultation is open until 28 March 2021.
