Keighley Road, a vital route passing through Denholme in the Bradford district, is set to undergo significant resurfacing work, resulting in its closure on six consecutive Sundays. Commencing on Sunday, July 23, this road closure, spanning between George Street and Whalley Lane, will be in effect from 7:30 am to 7:00 pm on each designated Sunday, subject to favourable weather conditions.

The resurfacing project on the A629 Keighley Road forms a crucial part of Bradford Council’s ongoing commitment to enhance the local road network, ensuring safer journeys for motorists and tackling the maintenance backlog.

Acknowledging that these essential repairs will inevitably cause temporary disruption, Councillor Alex Ross-Shaw, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, Planning, and Transport, reassured the public that measures have been implemented to minimise inconvenience.

During the closure, pedestrian access will remain unaffected, allowing individuals to continue traversing the area with ease. Moreover, residents and businesses situated along Keighley Road will be granted access when deemed safe, although some delays should be anticipated.

To preemptively inform the public and facilitate traffic diversion, prominent signage has already been erected, cautioning individuals about the forthcoming roadworks. In light of this situation, authorities urge individuals to avoid the affected area and seek alternative routes to minimise disruption to their journeys.

The resurfacing work on the A629 Keighley Road demonstrates Bradford Council’s commitment to investing in its road infrastructure, prioritising safety, and addressing the maintenance needs of the local network.

While temporary inconveniences are inevitable, the council’s proactive approach and efforts to maintain pedestrian access and facilitate limited access for residents and businesses reflect their commitment to mitigating the impact of these necessary roadworks.
