Bradford Council has initiated a consultation process to gauge public opinion on the implementation of a 20mph zone in Menston. The Traffic and Highways (North) Team at the council is keen to receive feedback from local residents regarding the proposed traffic measures aimed at enhancing safety in the village.

The plans encompass the establishment of a comprehensive 20mph zone throughout Menston, accompanied by traffic calming features at zone entrances and main through-routes. In addition, one-way streets are being proposed for Derry Hill and Leathley Road, alongside a priority give-way feature along Main Street, adjacent to Menston Primary School.

Councillor Alex Ross-Shaw, the Executive Member for Regeneration, Planning, and Transport at Bradford Council, expressed the purpose behind these proposals, stating, “We aim to create safer streets for local school children, pedestrians, and cyclists in Menston. Following the successful implementation of 20mph zones in the city centre, Shipley, and numerous schools across the district, Menston is our latest focus. We encourage residents to review the plans and provide their valuable feedback.”

For those interested, copies of the plans and supporting documents are available online at:
