The way roads and streets across the Bradford district are used is set to change as Bradford Council prepares to introduce measures to support social distancing following the easing of lockdown restrictions. This includes measures to make cycling for travel safer and easier. Proposals involve:

  • The installation of cycle lanes, protected by barriers, in to and out of Bradford city centre along with other supportive active travel and cycle measures around the district;
  • A reduction in speed limits on key routes where this will support cycle friendly infrastructure;
  • Increased secure cycle parking in council owned car parks and at other hubs around the district;
  • The closure of part of Hall Ings in the city centre to motor vehicles except buses, taxis and those accessing the NCP car park

These suggestions have been put forward by the Council after consulting with ward members, the general public, cycling group members and Clean Air Bradford. If approval is received the measures will be funded through Government monies to implement measures that will facilitate social distancing, as well as make it easier for people to cycle and walk.

You can see what proposals have been put forward, where, and let the team know if you think anything else could be improved to support cycling, walking and/or social distancing by following the link to the Bradford Council web portal
