Traffic issues in Wibsey village...

A report on traffic issues in Wibsey Village has recently been prepared by City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council Department of Transportation, Design and Planning Traffic and Highways (south)

The Objectives

  • Reduce road injuries
  • Safer routes to school
  • Pedestrian crossing facilities
  • Traffic calming
  • Reduce traffic volumes on residential roads

The Bradford South Area Committee has recently considered a report on traffic issues in Wibsey Village and resolved to promote measures to improve road safety and to encourage community life and activity. A package of measures is to be put forward to reduce speeds on Holroyd Hill, High Street and Fair Road, to provide additional pedestrian facilities and to rationalise parking.
Other measures included are a school zone at Wibsey Primary School with traffic calming adjacent - and in surrounding residential roads, one-way proposals for Upper George Street and the consideration of residents parking places in village streets. Other safety improvements are proposed at Wibsey roundabout and St Helena Road/Reevy Road.
Car parking in the village and the existing HGV prohibition are also being reviewed as part of the package.
