There is a disused railway bridge over the Aire River from Wheldon Road.
If it were repaired and reopened as a cycleway/footbridge it would give great access to the RSPB Fairburn Ings nature reserve directly from the centre of Castleford.
This would make the Nature reserve feel a part of Castleford rather than being accessible by car across the river.
The access to the park would make the former industrial side of Castleford much more attractive for regeneration.
It could also link to Allerton Bywater giving a traffic free route and help reduce motor traffic.
