ONE of Huddersfield's busiest roads could face further disruption.
Highway chiefs are to carry out surveys and site investigations on the A62 Leeds Road to see if more improvements should be made.
The work would involve the road from Northgate to Cooper Bridge roundabout and the Three Nuns junction.
Work could start this year.
Clr John Smithson, Kirklees Council Cabinet member responsible for regeneration said: "Leeds Road is one of the main routes in the district.
"It plays a key role in the economy of the town.
"It is already a very busy road and there is likely to be increased traffic on it.
"We need to look how Leeds Road can be improved to meet our economic regeneration objectives, while balancing this against our other aims, such as better public transport.
"This work will help us to establish what is possible."
The road has already seen extensive work in the past two years.
In April this year work started to improve the Leeds Road/Bradley Road junction.
The £600,000 scheme is part of a £1m programme to improve roads generally in the Bradley area.
The work includes extra lanes for traffic moving in and out of Colne Bridge Road and Leeds Road, new traffic signals, pedestrian crossings, lighting and signs.
The work is scheduled to finish in October.
Resurfacing between Bradley and Deighton on Leeds Road is going on.
New pavements have been completed at Bradley and a new junction serve the Poundstretcher (Instore) development.
In May last year an 18-week project began to repair the road and bridge at Bradley. Work also included resurfacing between Whitacre Street and Oak Road.
Last August, Yorkshire Water replaced long stretches of mains under Leeds Road.
