Road works to improve Haworth
9:00am Sunday 3rd March 2013 in News
Improvements to Church Street in Haworth will close the road to through traffic for three weeks while stone setts are relayed and repared.
Contractors working for Bradford Council have begun work to repair the link between Main Street, the Parsonage Museum, the rear of the Church, and the West Lane car park.
The contractors aim to re-open the road at weekends and residents who have a permit to park on Church Street will be able to use the museum car park.
Councillor Val Slater, executive member for planning, transport and highways, said: "Haworth attracts visitors from across the world thanks to its special character and links to the Bronte sisters.
"This work should make the area between Main Street, the church and the Parsonage even more appealing and will, together with improvements to other parts of Main Street, benefit the village for years to come.”
