MORE misery is on the cards for commuters between Huddersfield and Halifax.
In recent months they have faced lengthy hold-ups at Salterhebble near Halifax and at Halifax Road, Birchencliffe, for road improvement schemes.
Both those have now finished.
But more are set to start on the Calderdale Way between Ainley Top and Salterhebble with disruption throughout the spring and most of the summer.
Work to replace crash barriers along the entire length of the Elland by-pass and install power supplies to new lighting columns starts this Saturday and will last for 14 weeks.
During the work the 50mph dual carriageway road will be reduced to one lane each way and a new 30mph speed limit enforced.
A Calderdale Council spokesman said: "The crash barriers have been in place since the road was constructed some 25 years ago.
"But advances in crash barrier design mean the new barriers will be safer and more effective.
"Calderdale Council is carrying out this work because the safety of motorists and their passengers is of paramount importance."
