Thorpe Edge shortcut is blocked up with earth
7:40am Friday 29th June 2012 in Bradford
Earth has been piled at the ends of a piece of derelict land to stop reckless motorists shortcutting over it and putting lives at risk.
Incommunities had workers on site yesterday blocking off land between Sandholme Drive and Greystone Crescent in Thorpe Edge.
Last Sunday children playing had a narrow escape when a car, believed to be stolen, over-turned down a slope there.
People have used the grassy site as a recreational space since blocks of flats were pulled down but vehicles, including taxis and vans, had started using it as a downhill shortcut.
