Help shape final plans for A641 improvements

Posted on

Residents and businesses around the Brighouse area, as well as those living, working or travelling along the A641 from Bradford to Kirklees, are being asked to share feedback on a shortlist of plans to improve infrastructure and connections on the route.

Calderdale Council is working with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and in collaboration with Bradford and Kirklees councils, on plans to improve the A641 – a key route through Brighouse which connects Huddersfield and Bradford.

A shortlist package of suggested measures to improve travel along the A641 to enhance accessibility and connectivity for all modes of transport has now been developed. This has been informed by the valuable public feedback received earlier this year and includes junction improvements, new cycleways and green space and other new transport measures to better connect communities. Feedback from this consultation will be used to shape the preferred final package of interventions.

The proposals are split into five areas along the route and can be viewed in detail at https://www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/a641

Africaniwa :  Kowaa Fake Virtual photo exhibition July 30th at 10pm

Posted on Updated on

‘A Tribesman once said; Information is liberating. Another also; information is the currency of democracy.

Clearly, information is just powerful and in order for information to be of use, it has to be original, real, factual and unbiased but what happens in a world where it seems everyone is a news anchor, analyst and critic with their own version that can be branded as the truth and shared around the world at the click of a button yet with many others, risking their lives for the truth.
