Govt says it will spend £1.6m upgrading Cleggford Bridge

A major bridge in Yorkshire’s Kirklees region has been awarded £1.6 million of government funding for repairs.

Transport Minister Paul Clark said the funding for works on the Cleggford Bridge was the last part of a £15 million programme to build 3.5km of retaining walls and repair nine bridges in the Kirklees area.

While the main bulk of the programme was agreed to by the Department of Transport in September 2007, planning permission and listed building consent had not been obtained for the Cleggford Bridge until now.

Other bridges with funding under the scheme include the Calder River Bridge, Cooper Bridge, Headfield Road Bridge and Ravensthorpe Road Bridge.
