The Cycle Superhighway
The Cycle Superhighway between Leeds and Bradford is now open!
The CS1 Superhighway is just over fourteen kilometres of segregated cycle route between Leeds and Bradford, running from Leeds city centre along the A647 to the new Broadway shopping centre right in the heart of Bradford. Linking these two key cities provides people of all ages, ethnicities and status along the route with the opportunity to cycle and walk, away from the traffic.
In the coming months and years Leeds and Bradford will see increased levels of walking and cycling. This will give the region best opportunity to become less polluted, have a healthier population, create a safer urban environment and improve the potential for economic growth through access to employment and training.
Priorities have changed along the cycle superhighway route to make everyone’s journeys go more smoothly, for example there is green surfacing, bus stop diversions, new approaches to junctions, shared use sections and some more changes. Take a look at our new Guide to Changing Priorities on the Superhighway Booklet….and remember, Whatever your journey, look out for each other.
We encourage you to take a look at the map below and go out and give the route a try, Rediscover that Cycling Feeling and tell us where CityConnect takes you! (#peopleofcityconnect)
The CS2 Superhighway, which runs from Leeds City Centre to Seacroft is due for completion later this year. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates.
Now the building is finished, a range of new activities and support packages are in place to encourage everyone to use the route. Find out how you can be part of this on our Get Involved pages.
Keep an eye on our events page for details of the opening and all the activities taking place along the route.
