M62/M606 Chain Bar Interchange

Proposals to improve the M62/M606 Chain Bar Interchange.

Region:  North East
Start date:  TBC
Cost:  TBC
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Major Scheme
End date:  TBC
Programme:  

Progress report

We regularly review our plans for road investment and in October 2017 we published a supplementary Delivery Plan. As part of this plan, a number of schemes have been rescheduled to ensure we are providing the best possible economic boost and are achieving value for money for the tax-payer.

What next?

The M62/M606 Chain Bar scheme will be reconsidered as part of future road investment planning as it needs further development before it can demonstrate value for money.

Why we need this scheme

People travelling around the Chain Bar Interchange area experience severe delays when travelling between Leeds and Bradford on the M62 and M606. The growth expected in housing and businesses for this region will mean more vehicles are on these roads. As such we predict that these issues will only increase in the future if we do not act.

Aims

We’re designing this improvement project to deliver greater benefits for road users and local communities, and to support the region’s economy. Once completed it will:
  • reduce queuing times at the interchange
  • make journeys safer by improving the standard and capacity of the road, which will reduce the risk of accidents
  • support economic growth by providing additional road capacity and allowing the opportunity to release additional land for development
