A TRIO of councillors are bringing backs to the front in a £225,000 scheme.
The three councillors for Kirklees's Greenhead ward have announced a programme to improve the condition of eight rundown back lanes in Marsh, Paddock, Birkby and Hillhouse.
Clr Mohan Sokhal said this was the largest unadopted streets investment plan in Huddersfield in recent years.
He added: "The object of these improvements is to regenerate areas and help to ease parking problems in very densely built-up areas by allowing easier access to off-road parking for residents."
Clr Sokhal said the asphalting of back lanes would also help to fight vehicle crime and give children somewhere to play.
He added: "Many back lanes are in a terrible condition because refuse collection vehicles have damaged the surfaces and made them dangerous."
Clr Annie Smith said: "The cash for these improvements will come from the Greenhead ward budget.
"Almost 40% of this will be spent on the long back lane between Luck Lane and Broomfield Road in Marsh."
Clr Mehboob Khan said: "About 2,000 metres of unadopted streets will be improved. Our aim is to repeat this programme each year.
"We look forward to hearing from ward residents about other unadopted streets which can be considered for next year's programme."
Work is due to being in May and should take four months to complete.
