Work has started this week on the Otley Road Cycleway.
The section between Harlow Moor Road and Cold Bath Road is being tackled, and construction should take 4 weeks.
The contractors will also be widening Otley Road at the Harlow Moor Road, to create a right-turn lane. This will expand capacity for motor vehicles and result in more car trips, increasing CO2 emissions.
Transport for the North say we need to cut CO2 emissions from transport by 55% between 2018 and 2030, and to achieve this car trips must be reduced.
