Bradford Council has outlined the work it is carrying out to provide safe cycleways around schools and commuter routes.

The local authority was responding to a question on the issue from Councillor Sinead Engel (Lab, Clayton and Fairweather Green), pictured.

The Council said: “The Council is developing a number of cycle routes across the district which link into employment areas and schools.

“Key routes currently being implemented include the Canal Road greenway that links Shipley to the city centre, the Utley to Stockbridge cycle route, which links into the Airedale Greenway, and the Cycle City Ambition Grant project which includes a 23km cycle superhighway between Leeds and Bradford.”
