Leeds Superhighway Cycle Route




The West Yorkshire Combined Authority had generated funding for an improved cycle link across the city to connect existing routes out to the A64 and A65. This was in light of the requirement to reduce disruption in the city. A key contract for Colas, the scheme developed our business profile and ability to tender for similar projects of similar size whilst further enforcing our relationship with Leeds City Council as a contractor that ‘saved the day’.
