A629 Calder and Hebble Junction

Scheme outline

Reconstruction of the A629 between the end of the dual carriageway at Elland and Rookery Lane, just to the north, to provide two continuous lanes in each direction. The existing junction with the A6026 and B6112 at Elland Wood Bottom will be substantially rebuilt to improve traffic flow.

At present this is the point at which the A629, travelling north from the M62, narrows to a single lane and enters the urban area at Halifax. Work is ongoing to provide two lanes each way on the A629 in towards Halifax town centre; this scheme will complete the link. The junction at Elland Wood Bottom is a cause of significant congestion on this route and is on Roads.org.uk's list of Bad Junctions.

The improved junction will include construction of a new dual two-lane link road across the Calder and Hebble Navigation to the south of the existing junction, a new roundabout where the link road connects to the B6112 Stainland Road, and reconstruction of the existing mini-roundabout as a major new signalised junction.
