Greengates road improvement works to restart


Bradford Council are restarting work on the £12.3m road improvements scheme at the junction of the A658 Harrogate Road and the A657 New Line in Greengates.

Work on the scheme was paused due to the restrictions put in place by the Government to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus.

In recent weeks the Government guidance has changed and the easing of some lockdown measures has started which means that the work, which is being done in conjunction with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, can restart safely.

The main works are now scheduled to start on Monday 27 July and are expected to take around 64 weeks to complete.

The council have written to residents and businesses in the area to let them know that the work is due to restart and will be in further contact with those who are directly affected by the work.

Due to COVID-19 being still in circulation and to make sure those on site can work safely and stick to the latest guidelines on social distancing, work on site will need to be done differently.
