Leeds southbank The biggest regeneration project the city has seen in more than 100 years. The regeneration of the South Bank is set to elevate Leeds to a global destination for investment, living, learning creativity and leisure.
One of the most ambitious regeneration schemes in Europe, the project aims to double the size of the city centre - transforming 253 hectares of land - the size of 350 football pitches.
The mammoth project will provide over 35,000 jobs, over 8,000 homes and attract workers from across the world.
The redevelopment will include a transformation of the road network, the waterfront as well as the installation of super-fast broadband and new public spaces.
A total of £8.6m will be spent to transform road space into new green space and improved public realm.
