Ideally located between the City Regions of Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield, Huddersfield is supported by a strong road, rail, and air transport network, and therefore offers easy commuting or travel to surrounding centres, with rapid access to the rest of the country via motorways and national rail and air connections.
Situated on the south western edge of Huddersfield town centre, The Waterfront is bordered by the A62 Manchester Road, the A616 Chapel Hill to Sheffield and the River Colne. Less than five minutes walk from the town centre, this 1.2 hectares (3 acres) site is now ready for construction.
The land has been restored and a section of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal has been upgraded which, together with a new public plaza, will act as the centre piece to this significant site.
The surrounding highways have been improved to ensure safe and seamless passage for vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists from the town centre and surrounding areas.
