WORK on turning a temporary footbridge into a permanent structure is set to start at the end of the month.
The temporary bridge at Norridge Bottom in Holmfirth was put in place while the nearby Victoria Bridge was refurbished.
It proved so popular that Kirklees councillors gave the go-ahead for a £100,000, permanent bridge.
Work on building the foundations is due to begin on September 29 and should be finished by November 28.
The footbridge links the bus station and the car park of the Old Bridge Hotel.
It will be removed while the permanent foundations are built.
On the hotel side of the bridge a length of the river wall will be rebuilt and a pedestrian ramp will be constructed to improve access.
A public right of way will be created from the bridge through the hotel car park to Norridge Bottom.
Council officials said they were hoping the work would also benefit businesses in and around Norridge Bottom.
Clr David Payne, council Cabinet member for highways and transport, said: "The bridge is well used by locals and visitors. It will be good to see a permanent structure in place."
In order to carry out the work the access to the Old Bridge Hotel from Market Walk will be closed for two 48-hour periods, which will be advertised at the site.
Access to businesses on Market Walk will be unaffected and pedestrian access will be maintained throughout.
The bus station loop access will be narrowed temporarily.
