BRADFORD Council will "review" traffic calming measures on a Bingley road that one Councillor claims causes more problems than they solve.

The speed humps were recently installed on Keighley Road, near Bingley Grammar School, by the Council's highways department.

Bingley Councillor John Pennington (Cons) says he has spoken to numerous drivers who have complained about the severity of the speed humps, and said when he went to the site he saw one in 10 cars "bottoming out" going over the humps.

He believes the Council needs to look at the roadworks and reduce the height of the bumps.

He added: "‘I appreciate the need for traffic calming especially by a school but the new template is more dangerous than deterrent due to excessive height. Clearly there needs to be a modification to get things right, there will be claims for damage to vehicles, even whiplash to passengers."

In answer to the suggestion that a similar scheme is to be introduced by Beckfoot School in Bradford Road John added "Heaven help us, people will stop coming in to the town this needs sorting and sorting fast."

A Bradford Council spokesperson, said: “The new speed bumps are within national guidelines, however, we are listening to local people’s feedback and will review the works.”
