Galliford Try‘s Infrastructure division has been selected by Calderdale Council for a £34m ($43.06m) project under the YORcivil framework. 

The A629 Phase II Halifax town centre scheme is funded entirely by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s West Yorkshire-plus Transport Fund. 

It is a part of the Next Chapter portfolio, a collection of economic regeneration and growth projects aimed at realising Calderdale’s Vision 2024 aspirations. 

The latest scheme is aimed at revitalising Halifax’s town centre by transforming the A629 route in the UK.  

The scheme will be divided into three sections – western, eastern, and central – allowing work to proceed separately and sequentially to minimise disruption. 

It focuses on pedestrianising key areas and rerouting access to the town’s railway station to reduce traffic in the centre.

The project will make alterations to road layouts to promote greener transport options, facilitating access to walking, cycling, and public transport routes for the community. 

It will establish a new public space outside Square Chapel and Halifax Central Library and enhance and add crossing facilities. 

It will also introduce bus priority access and new bus stops at strategic locations among others. 

Galliford Try Infrastructure managing director David Lowery said: “We are delighted to be working with Calderdale Council to deliver this much-needed scheme that will make such a difference to the local community. 

“We have a growing expertise in creating greener transport infrastructure in city centre settings and look forward to working with all the stakeholders involved to create a lasting impact for the people of Halifax.” 

Commencing in late February, initial work will involve removing some trees and hedgerows near the A629 roundabout at Cow Green/Bull Green to facilitate construction. 

Galliford Try will establish a work compound at Union Street’s car park starting in April this year. 

The latest project comes after Galliford Try’s Building London and South East Commercial segment topped out a build-to-rent building in the north of London, UK.   

This initiative, financed by ICG Real Estate, is a component of the larger Brent Cross Town revitalisation project covering 180 acres.
