The Cycle Superhighway
The Cycle Superhighway between Leeds and Bradford opened in July 2016.
The second phase (CS2) of the Superhighway runs between Leeds and Seacroft. In February 2018 some sections of this phase will be closed for improvements. Works will start at the Seacroft end and progress towards the city centre – see below for latest progress updates
These minor works are the result of a review of both phases and includes both Leeds and Bradford. The Leeds to Seacroft section (CS2) has been prioritised for changes to be made and the minor works have been viewed and approved by the CityConnect advisory group, made up of local stakeholders including members of the Leeds Cycling Campaign.
Improvements will be made to small elements of the route to better protect people cycling on the route and make the Cycle Superhighway even safer and easier to use.

At these junctions improvements will be made to pedestrian crossings and extra signage will be installed. Sections where the superhighway passes bus stops will be monitored for interactions between people on bikes and people getting off buses. Some closures of sections of the route may occur. Disruption will be minimised and there are other cycle-friendly routes available. Take a look at our online journey planner for route suggestions http://cyclemap.cyclecityconnect.co.uk/journey/.
These works are unrelated to the project delivering the CityConnect project in the centre of Leeds linking CS1 with CS2. More information about this project can be found on the project page
We encourage you to take a look at the map below and go out and give the route a try, and Rediscover that Cycling Feeling
A range of activities and support packages are in place to encourage everyone to use the route, from free cycle training to becoming part of a Bike Friendly Business. You can see these and find out how you can be part of them on our Home page.
