Details

The feasibility study considers options for improving access to Leeds Bradford International Airport. The study was undertaken by the consultancy firms WSP and Parsons Brinckerhoff, with local input provided by a stakeholder reference group. The government’s brief specified that this study should consider improved access by road, rail and bus.

The ‘Option assessment report’ describes the process of selecting and assessing options for improving access to Leeds Bradford International Airport. It concludes with the consultants’ recommendation on which options should be subject to further consideration in both the short to medium term and the longer term.

The ‘Appraisal specification report’ considers what further work would be required to take forward the recommended options.

This study began on 1 April 2014 and concluded in November 2014.

The government has now responded to this study in the 2014 Autumn Statement.

Addendum

The ‘Option assessment report’ includes details of transport schemes which have now been superseded.
