A Bradford Council survey to support plans to transform Keighley’s road network is now under way and will run until 1st March.
People visiting, living or working in the Keighley area are invited to take part in the Town Centre Transport Survey to give their views on issues including traffic flow in the town, congestion, parking and public transport.
The survey is government-funded through the Keighley Towns Fund and the results will be used to set out a series of options to improve circulation in the town, for a later public consultation. The options are expected to focus on improving the viability of bus services, walking and cycling in Keighley.
Bradford Council’s Portfolio Holder for Regeneration, Transport and Planning Councillor Alex Ross-Shaw said: “This survey will take an in-depth look at the ways people travel around Keighley and we hope to hear the views of as many people as possible about what they think is working, and what improvements they’d most like to see.
“It will help us identify future projects to improve transport in Keighley, not just through the Towns Fund but potentially the Long Term Plan and future funding opportunities. This study will help us identify new traffic schemes that would really make a difference to people in the town.”
Acting Chair of the Keighley Towns Fund Liz Barker added: “This is the first step in taking a thorough, detailed look at traffic circulation in Keighley, with the potential to make significant improvements going forward. These will potentially benefit everyone in the town making it easier to get around and to access.”
The survey is being undertaken on the streets, as well as running online at: https://letstalk.bradford.gov.uk/keighley-transport-study/surveys/keighley-town-centre-user-survey
