Businesses’ views are being sought about their experiences of using Tong Street in Bradford.
The south-east Bradford highway is renowned for congestion and a scheme is being developed to help reduce the problem. A £13m improvement scheme along the one-mile section from Knowles Lane to Westgate Hill includes increasing capacity and improving accessibility.
Businesses are invited to tell us, Bradford Chamber of Commerce, or West Yorkshire Combined Authority direct about any issues they have, for example:
- Does peak-time traffic on Tong Street cause regular delays, increased costs and loss of productivity?
- Does it cause regular difficulty for staff, clients and movement of goods/services?
- Is it affecting your current or future development plans, e.g. investment?
The scheme is one of several included in the £1bn West Yorkshire Plus Transport Fund programme, to stimulate housing, employment and economic growth across Leeds City Region and should be delivered by late 2022. More information can be found at: www.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/wytf.
