A comprehensive survey initiated by Bradford Council to support the redevelopment of Keighley’s road network is currently in progress and will continue until March 1st.

Residents, workers, and visitors in the Keighley area are encouraged to participate in the Town Centre Transport Survey, aimed at gathering insights on various issues such as traffic flow, congestion, parking, and public transport.

Funded by the government through the Keighley Towns Fund, the survey results will be instrumental in formulating a range of options to enhance circulation within the town. These options will be presented for further public consultation and are anticipated to concentrate on improving the viability of bus services, as well as promoting 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 actively being conducted both on the streets and online via https://letstalk.bradford.gov.uk/keighley-transport-study/surveys/keighley-town-centre-user-survey.
