Fund a 20-mile motorway between Halifax and Burnley
We want the Government to invest in the construction of a 20 mile motorway connecting Halifax and Burnley.
Currently the quickest route by the A-Road takes around 44 mins. This isn't good enough as it severely hinders the commute for job openings for residents based near either town.
We believe there would be a huge benefit in a new motorway cutting through the high moorlands passing by the towns of Todmorden and Hebden Bridge. Residents of Bradford, Halifax and Huddersfield would be able to commute more quickly to the towns of Burnley & Blackburn to access the industrial job market there, and vice versa.
We believe the current single lane A-Road (A646) and hour-long 44-mile alternative motorway route, which takes you down Manchester then back up, are not adequate.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
