New bridge opens in Mytholmroyd

21st March 2024 News

Calderdale Council, with support from the West Yorkshire-plus Transport Fund and the Leeds City Region Growth Deal, has installed a stronger and carefully designed replacement for the old footbridge that was beyond repair.

The new concrete, glass and steel structure at the junction of New Road and Burnley Road has a waterproof, anti-slip surface, and complements the historic Grade II listed road bridge nearby. It has been designed to work with the Mytholmroyd Flood Alleviation Scheme.

Further work in Mytholmroyd includes the creation of a new route across the edge of Burnley Road Academy playing fields, to connect Burnley Road with Rochdale Canal for people walking, cycling or wheeling. Some traffic restrictions to protect a number of side road junctions have already been introduced, and a new bus shelter, covered with a ‘green’ roof, has now been installed at the New Road junction. Once the new mains electrical supply is installed, the bus shelter will include real-time travel updates showing how long the bus will take to arrive and when the next bus will be.
