Wakefield Eastern Relief Road

Approval is sought to cover a cost over-run for this project to be met by the West Yorkshire plus Transport Fund. The scheme is now complete and opened to the public in April 2017. The original funding agreement allocated £32.019 million for Wakefield Council to construct the scheme. The final cost has increased by £5.574 million above the approved allocation, and it is this increase which WYCA will consider at its meeting on 5 October 2017.
