Progress report

We are now developing potential solutions aimed at increasing capacity of the M621 and improving journey time reliability along the route.

Once we have developed our options these will be assessed to determine:

  • value for money
  • impact on the environment
  • impact on the local community

We are also working closely with Leeds City Council to ensure our plans align with their wider transport strategy for the city.

Why we need this scheme

The M621 is currently operating at or above capacity during peak periods, which leads to congestion, poor journey time reliability and poor safety performance. The scheme aims to address these issues and in doing so support the region’s economic growth aspirations. In addition, there is an absence of driver information technology along this stretch of the network. The implementation of technology will form part of the planned improvements to the M621 and will look to improve safety and incident management as well as improve the ability to manage traffic on the M621.

The scheme is included in the Highways England Delivery Plan.

Aims

The aims of this scheme are to:

  • support economic growth
  • provide a safe and serviceable network
  • provide a more free flowing network
  • improve the environment
  • provide an accessible and integrated network
