MORE than 50 streets in Clayton are included in a 20mph zone launched this month.

Streets in the Clayton Lane area, including Druids Street, Cambridge Street, Oakleigh Street, Westhill Terrace, Arkwright Street, Oxford Street and Cranbrook Street are subject to the restrictions.

The scheme, which was put in place last Monday, comes as Bradford Council continues to roll out 20mph zones across the district.

During a consultation about the Clayton plans last year, 12 people supported the proposals and five objected to them.

Highways officers maintained that the measures would help to encourage safe driver behaviour and protect vulnerable road users. They also said that it would encourage more physical activity such as walking and cycling.

Other public notices from Bradford Council this week include temporary restrictions such as road closures, one-way systems and other roadworks at:

*Bavaria Place, Manningham. Its full length from its junction with Church Street to its junction with Carlisle Road, and also the footpath from its junction with Church Street to its junction with Anvil Street.

This will be in place to Saturday March 13

This will be in force until to Monday February 22.
