Phase 2 Silsden to Riddlesden (Airedale Greenway)

Building on the canal towpath upgrades made in Phase 1, this scheme will involve the construction of an off- highway cycle route, with high quality surfacing, covering around 2.7km from Lodge Hill Bridge at Riddlesden Golf Club (Bridge 194) to Silsden Road Bridge (Bridge 191A).

The work will start on Monday 26 March 2018 with an estimated 16-week construction period. Further details, including a programme of works with details of closures and diversions, will be available shortly.

The scheme will enable the towpath to be used safely and comfortably by cyclists and pedestrians all year round. The towpath already provides a number of communities and towns within the Bradford District access to a continuous off highway route from Leeds City Centre to Skipton and the key employment and retail hubs surrounding them.

The material used to improve the towpath has been chosen according to the Canal and River Trust Towpath Design Standards 2013. It will be a natural compacted limestone surface. This has been used on some sections of the CityConnect 1 scheme and is well suited to a semi-rural environment such as this.
