A62/A644 (Wakefield Road) Link Road

Updated December 2018

We are developing a scheme to provide a solution to reduce congestion in the Cooper Bridge area and on the A644 (Wakefield Road) and A62 (Leeds Road) nearby.  The proposed scheme includes significant changes to the existing roads and junctions around the Cooper Bridge area, including the construction of a new link road between Bradley Junction and the A644 Wakefield Road.

This scheme is part of a long term phased delivery plan for the A62/A644 which will ensure that all infrastructure; highways, public transport, cycling, walking, and green spaces, are provided to support housing, employment and economic growth in the region.
