Snow causes weather chaos in Bradford district

First published in News Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Photograph of the Author by , T&A Reporter

Hundreds of schools and children's nurseries have been shut across the Bradford district today after several inches of snow fell overnight.

Although most main roads, including motorways, are passable with care, drivers have been warned that conditions on others are extremely treacherous.

A Highways Agency spokesman said: "Although we've treated the roads consistently throughout the night the roads could still have patches of ice, so those people who do have to drive, we're asking them to keep their speed down, keep the distance between themselves and the car in front to avoid any sharp braking.

"Some of the local roads will still be very difficult".

David Williams, Yorkshire Ambulance Service deputy director of operations, said: “Our staff are working extremely hard to get to people who call upon us for help as quickly and as safely as possible but understandably hazardous driving conditions may lead to extended drive-times meaning it might take us a little longer than normal to reach patients in the worst-hit areas.

“Please take extra care when out driving or walking and where possible avoid travelling at all in icy or snowy conditions.  If you do have to go out, ensure that you wear appropriate footwear and warm clothing.”

The hazardous conditions have also led to many bus services being suspended, or altered to stick to main routes in Bradford.
These include:
256 suspended
•  268 suspended
•  425/427 suspended
•  607, 617 & 618 using Broadstone Way only in Holme Wood
•  610 main roads only - not serving Bartle Lane or Hollingwood.
•  613/4 using Otley Road and Killinghall Road
•  615 not serving Allerton (missing Bell Dean Road/Saffron Drive)
•  617& 618 not serving Bell Dean Road & Saffron Drive, terminating at Stoney Lane
•  620 running direct on Toller lane (Haworth Road side), operating on Bierley Lane in both directions.
•  622 & 623 not serving Chemical Works.
•  626 not serving Knoll Estate.
•  633 & 634 main roads only
•  645 not serving Ravnscliffe - using Harrogate Road and New Line
•  675 & 677 main roads only, not serving Ashbournes, terminating at Cottingley roundabout.
•  680 using Oak Lane in both directions.
•  846 & 847 main roads, use Kings Road direct.
There are also 30 minute delays on rail services between Bradford Forster Square and Ilkley/Leeds and Skipton and Leeds.
One lane of the M62 westbound between junction 25 at Brighouse and junction 22 Rishworth Moor is blocked because of snow.
Leeds-Bradford Airport is open, but is advising passengers check with their airlines for any disruptions before travelling.

Sooner or later we are going to have to find a better way to deal with the snow than "lets shut everything down" - cant people walk anywhere, anymore.

And what about making snow / winter tyres compulsory.

I can remember the days when every able person on Jobseekers allowance had to go to the job centre and get a shovel and go out and clear the pavements or get no money that week. That would help to keeping things open

Already have a way of dealing with the heavy snow, if the schools are closed, than stay at home. Sixteen mile hike round trip to school, walking mostly on the edge of the road with the way people drive in this city, no thank you. Not too sure but maybe some professional people who know what they are doing make the decision to close schools for a reason. Moreover! when the idiots get where they going or give up and abandon their cars on the side of the road or worst on the pavement I shall drive my car along the side roads to get to the main road and go to work like any other day, without snow tyres or chains!

What about other countries ie America, Canada etc where there is a lot more snow fall but life still goes on there ? Why does it come to a halt for us here ?

Better planning and equipment is needed. Whoever is in charge of keeping the roads clear in this type of weather needs to have an appraisal and see if he/she is really the right person for the job.

And better equipment needs to be sourced to deal with the issues - or more manpower if needed. If the council has millions to spend on a 'Park' then they should have more than enough to spend on equipment/manpower to keep this city going - i'll carry on day dreaming

don't blame the council today. they did a really good job, i've been into town at 7am and back up to wibsey, no problems. all roads open except side roads so no excuses. on the estates if everyone came out and just cleared that bit in front of their house even the side toads would be open. or at least most of them would be.

I honestly don't get the ire directed at schools for being shut. They're dammed if they do and dammed if they don't.

Can you imagine the uproar if they didn't close and little Jonny slipped in the ice and broke his leg - we live in an increasingly litigious society, I can't blame schools for a minute for shutting!

I'm thrilled my daughter's school is closed. We have to drive there (and before anyone comments on this, yes we HAVE to drive - it isn't on a bus route and is too far for her to walk) and my road is impassible. Besides, I get to spend the day (once the obligatory cup of tea has been drunk ;p) playing in the snow with her and creating magical childhood memories.

RollandSmoke isn't on job seekers allowance as well you know Albion. Can't say I'm suprised that people are using this oppertunity to have a go at the unemployed. I guess you believe that if you demoralise them enough they will be better able to find the jobs that no-one seems to be able to create in Bradford.

So what happens to those who can't for whatever reason get to the jobcenters for their shovels and get no money? Do they starve or freeze? Are these benefits or a blackmail device? Why would the unemployed want to help the community who demonise them on a daily basis?

Some people have a talent for enhancing their prospects of receiving benefits (fooling the relevant authorities), If my winter fuel allowance is withdrawn I would say "fair enough". But is hasn't been (yet).
Everyone that I know (in all age groups) seems to claim to know people who are cheating the system, Probably some are exaggerating, but not all of them.

By all means "let's get back to the snow" I've always been well satisfied with the council's efforts at gritting and so-on, and have been especially so this winter. There are some who continually complain about it though, are their areas less well served than mine? Or are they just "moaners"?
Why do you always feel the need to have that predictable "dig" at roly though? I myself have noticed your constant personal and unnecessary comments towards him and his life situation for a while now.

It is as though you know him personally but dare not say it to his face so make sly personal digs on here. If you do know him and don't like him for some reason be a real man and admit it and give him a chance to defend himself.

As it is these monotonous constant digs about him being lazy etc. is a form of harassment and abuse and actually it is against the newsquest rules.
You don't know any of us from Adam so treat others as you yourself would like treating by us.
I for one remember him saying illness was why he didn't work and unless you are his GP you know nothing about his personal circumstances so stop it insulting him and grow up. I have noticed this vilification of some on the people on here and to be honest you are acting like Cameron sheep.

Get your noses from up your backsides and out of the Daily Mail and keep your ignorant comments to yourselves.

Maybe if people had a town to be proud of they would voluntarily go out and shovel snow like we did in the old days but alas we live in Bradford and would probably come to harm or be sued for it.

Can you imagine the uproar if they didn't close and little Jonny slipped in the ice and broke his leg - we live in an increasingly litigious society, I can't blame schools for a minute for shutting!

I'm thrilled my daughter's school is closed. We have to drive there (and before anyone comments on this, yes we HAVE to drive - it isn't on a bus route and is too far for her to walk) and my road is impassible. Besides, I get to spend the day (once the obligatory cup of tea has been drunk ;p) playing in the snow with her and creating magical childhood memories.
well said, the new 'voice of reason'
Exactly!

I remember (a long time ago) when I was promoted to sergeant I was called into the pay office by the regimental pay master and asked if I were willing to forego my families right to child benefit. To which I said yes, as I believed I were doing my little bit for my Country. Maybe Albino and his fantastic private pension (which he says he has paid for, and does not receive any other state benefit) may next year forego his right to the winter fuel payment or even donate it to someone not as well off as he. (Rather than gleefully and publicly stating that he has spent it sometime ago) However after reading his comment on another thread about shooting people, which could be seen as incitement to murder, then maybe not! Remember some people who are serving the Country wherever in the world are doing so in many ways. By the way the snow looks lovely!

I don't recall saying that it was "fantastic", just that I had one and that is the reason that I don't get additional benefits, some pensioners that I know, actually have a larger monthly income than I, because they receive seemingly generous benefits.
I do actually have a couple of modest direct debit donations to causes which I and many others consider deserving.
The winter fuel payment was automatically paid into my bank and simply swallowed up in the monthly outgoings.
The "shooting" remark was meant to be light hearted and was followed by another post where I said that I considered the current set up regarding illegal workers as inadequate.
I think I've explained myself adequately, if you think not, then tough. Sweet dreams.

What a big man you are eh? Have you always been such a two faced ****?

If I have a personal problem with someone I know as an adult I speak to them not hide behind anonymity of a laptop spouting off childish bile.

I take it he is better than you in some way and you need to bring him down a peg or two?

When you return your winter fuel allowance then and only then are you in any position to insult others who take other allowances from the state to what they are lawfully entitled. Until then don't you think you are a little old for **** from behind a laptop? isn't that what kids do?

If you know him personally then maybe you will know how many years he worked and paid into the pot wont you?

As he says he has never signed on so use your small brain and realise you too could have become ill at any time when in your working life and maybe you might have also needed financial help until you recovered?

Campaign for a change in the law if you do not agree with a particular law don´t just moan or state meaningless statements.
Now lets get back to the snow and why some schools are closed.
I haven't moaned! You have accused me of doing so!
I simply pointed out my situation and had a personal dig at Rolland, I won't elaborate as to why.
How do you know that I don't already campaign for things that I consider to be unjust or unfair?
While writing elsewhere, I call in here, I comment where I'm allowed to and I stay within the required terms and conditions. Nothing wrong with that, whether anyone agrees with my posts or they don't.
By all means "let's get back to the snow" I've always been well satisfied with the council's efforts at gritting and so-on, and have been especially so this winter. There are some who continually complain about it though, are their areas less well served than mine? Or are they just "moaners"?
Why do you always feel the need to have that predictable "dig" at roly though? I myself have noticed your constant personal and unnecessary comments towards him and his life situation for a while now.

It is as though you know him personally but dare not say it to his face so make sly personal digs on here. If you do know him and don't like him for some reason be a real man and admit it and give him a chance to defend himself.

As it is these monotonous constant digs about him being lazy etc. is a form of harassment and abuse and actually it is against the newsquest rules.
You don't know any of us from Adam so treat others as you yourself would like treating by us.
I for one remember him saying illness was why he didn't work and unless you are his GP you know nothing about his personal circumstances so stop it insulting him and grow up. I have noticed this vilification of some on the people on here and to be honest you are acting like Cameron sheep.

Get your noses from up your backsides and out of the Daily Mail and keep your ignorant comments to yourselves.

Maybe if people had a town to be proud of they would voluntarily go out and shovel snow like we did in the old days but alas we live in Bradford and would probably come to harm or be sued for it.
Sorry but I would be unfair to give the information that you request, I most certainly do know who he is and his personal circumstances.
Okay I get this now. You know roly personally yet you make nasty snide comments on here about him rather than saying it to his face?

What a big man you are eh? Have you always been such a two faced ****?

If I have a personal problem with someone I know as an adult I speak to them not hide behind anonymity of a laptop spouting off childish bile.

I take it he is better than you in some way and you need to bring him down a peg or two?

When you return your winter fuel allowance then and only then are you in any position to insult others who take other allowances from the state to what they are lawfully entitled. Until then don't you think you are a little old for **** from behind a laptop? isn't that what kids do?

If you know him personally then maybe you will know how many years he worked and paid into the pot wont you?

As he says he has never signed on so use your small brain and realise you too could have become ill at any time when in your working life and maybe you might have also needed financial help until you recovered?

No assumptions there at all Albion. I say exactly what I and others obviously can see. It is all their written in black and white. You admit you have had a "dig" yourself.

I never asked if you gave a hoot and couldn't care less if you did or didn't. What isn't my business? I never claimed it was did I?

Also if that is how you chose to have it it's not your business what other posters do either is it?

So maybe you will stop hounding Roly now?

Sounds like I have hit a nerve somewhere, is it when I said you are a p u s s y because you dare not say it to his face?

Well dear that is what you are and a sad old one at that.

Now you have a nice evening.

Oh it`s the hate Albion day is it.... Perhaps all those disrespecting him are the ones with the problem, get a grip FFS, he`s the only one on here who tells it like it is.... and probably one of the few who has contributed to this ol city and kept those who dont work in the life they have become accustomed too..... 3 cheers for albion and his winter fuel allowance..

Actually it was Albion doing the disrespecting. Can you not read?

One of the only one on here to have worked? You are joking aren't you?
What does he want a bleeding medal?
Its nothing special to work you know.
Everyone I know has worked all their lives it is normal to work in my world.

Anyway if he aimed his venom at the right people it would be a start. Working does not give anyone the right to treat others badly or mock and disrespect them. I bet he sits twitching his curtains while moaning to his poor old wifey about the bloody immigrants.

What do you call people who hide behind a computer to insult someone they know rather than saying it to their face?

He needs to man up a bit. He gives enough stick out to others often enough so it wont harm him to have a little of his own medicine.
