A problem footpath has been fixed following complaints from residents.
Work has been undertaken to repair and improve the footpath linking Longwood to Salendine Nook.
It runs between Salendine Nook High School and Longwood Edge Road and is used frequently by students from the school and college.
Locals and dog walkers also make use of the right of way.
However, residents complained to Lib Dem councillor Cahal Burke that it needed attention.
In a survey undertaken by Clr Burke earlier this year, the condition of the path was one of the chief complaints raised.
This led to the councillor, who runs a weekly surgery at Sainsbury’s in Mount, to negotiating with Kirklees Council to get the work done.
Improvement works included clearing the path and cutting back the vegetation.
The path surface was also levelled and resurfaced and timber edging was installed.
Clr Burke described the footpath as an important local link between the two areas.
He said: “It provides school and college pupils with direct access to the school grounds.
“This is safer and quicker than walking along the road.
“It also encourages them to get extra exercise and helps keeps cars off the road.
“The path is also important for people wanting to make their way from Longwood to Salendine Nook, to Mount and to Lindley as well as being a popular route for dog walkers.
“Public rights of way play an important part in helping people of all ages keep active and healthy and need to be looked after.”
Clr Burke urged locals to take care of the footpath and report any issues with it, such as littering or dog fouling, to the council.
