The new pedestrian footbridge over the Calder and Hebble Navigation waterway is being built and will be installed this weekend.
The new footbridge has been put together on Park Road.
The 30m-long bridge will provide an important link for local people between Park Road and Elland Bridge Road. The bridge will be 1.5m wide and accessible for people with buggies, wheelchairs and bikes.

It will be lit at night and is being installed by the Canal & River Trust’s contractor, Kier.
The bridge will be swung into place during the day on Sunday and then engineering work will continue on it for most of next week before it opens towards the end of the week.
While the bridge is being installed the junction of Elland Road and Park Road will be closed from 5am to 9pm on Sunday.
