The facility is being put in place on Railway Street, and work is nearing completion.
"For far too long shoppers crossing this very busy street have had to depend on the traffic lights changing at the ring road junction to cross. But no more.
"Soon the new controlled crossing, which is near completion, will be in place and pedestrians will be able to cross safely to shop in the very busy retail park.
"I know this has been a long time coming but we’re nearly there and I thank Dewsbury residents for their patience."
