A £5,000 scheme will improve visibility for drivers at the Surenes Road/Russell Street junction.
Committee members also approved £10,000 for cycle safety improvements along Main Road and Skipton Road between Eastburn and Steeton, and £30,000 for pedestrian and cycle improvements on Bradford Road, Riddlesden.
They agreed £15,000 for high-friction surfacing and warning signs for the Aire Valley Road roundabout at Aireworth Road, Marley.
A further £10,000 will be spent on a shared footway and cycleway on Hard Ings Road, Keighley.
