Bradford-Shipley Route Improvement Consultation

Views are being invited on plans to improve the main roads between Bradford and Shipley.

Information on the plans is online here, including an online questionnaire (hard copy available on request).

Bradford Chamber’s Leadership Group will receive a presentation on this issue at its meeting on 29 January, but we would still like to hear from other members who have time to check out the plans.

An illustration of options is available – click on the ‘possible options’ image to the right – while public drop-in sessions are being held on several January dates. An email or phone call to the Chamber’s policy team on the plans is most welcome – 01274 230057 or email here.

People are being asked about their experiences of using Canal Road/Valley Road and Manningham Lane/Keighley Road, and what changes are most important for the two routes.   Plans include turning the A650 into a high quality bus route, making it more attractive to use public transport, cycling and walking (and so reducing traffic volumes).

Objectives of the plan include:

  • Improving the A650 Manningham Lane/Keighley Road corridor
  • Promoting the A6037 Canal Road/Valley Road as the main strategic route
  • Relive existing congestion issues.

The consultation closes on 8 February.
