Proposed Route Map For Bypass

As of March 2018, the proposed route we have goes along Wakefield Road towards the Mining Museum. A roundabout takes you right, and through the field, to join Hardcastle Lane. A second roundabout then takes you across fields to join Barnsley Road. No houses would be affected, other than perhaps some views. This has been deemed the shortest and cheapest route. However, because this land comes under Wakefield Council, cooperation is required between both Wakefield and Kirklees authorities.
