Do you have a question you’d like to ask the people behind the new cycle superhighway which cuts through west Leeds?
The new £29 million CityConnect superhighway is an ambitious scheme to boost connectivity between East Leeds and Bradford.
It aims to increase levels of cycling and walking and improve people’s access to a bike and its associated health benefits. The scheme also aims to reduce CO2 emissions and improve local air quality by encouraging people to take to their bikes rather than their cars.
CityConnect is funded through the Department for Transport, via a fund ringfenced for cycling improvements.
But the scheme has also proven controversial in some quarters, with concerns about the impact of work on local businesses and residents, communication issues and the overall value of the scheme.
How will the project transform our commuting habits? How is the impact of work being managed so the impact on local communities is minimal?
Now’s your chance to find out. CityConnect bosses have agreed to field questions on any cycle superhighway subject from West Leeds Dispatch readers.
It can be on anything you want to know about the project. The agenda is set purely by you.
All you need to do is post your questions in the comment section below or drop us an email firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me @wldispatch.
Closing date for questions is this Friday. We’ll choose a selection of questions, put them to CityConnect and post the answers next week.
