A Bradford councillor has criticised plans to close a major route into Cullingworth at weekends for repairs to a wall.

Coun Mike Ellis (pictured) said the closure of Keighley Road could seriously disrupt access for residents. His concern centres on repairs to a wall at the junction of Keighley Road and Bingley Road.

Bradford Council has revealed that work would be carried out on Saturdays and Sundays for three weekends from March 1 and 2, weather permitting.

Coun Ellis (Con, Bingley Rural) said: “If the Cullingworth to Keighley road is closed, it will cause serious disruption for residents.”
