A SCHEME that will enable a number of transport projects in Bradford to move forward will be discussed tomorrow.

The Bradford Strategic Transport Model is a £700,000 scheme that will be used to plot future works to the District’s infrastructure. It will be discussed at a meeting of West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s Investment Committee tomorrow.

Once it is up and running, the model will be used to develop and appraise various different transport schemes in the District, develop government funding bids and for assessing development options associated with the Bradford Local Plan.
