A BRADFORD zebra crossing once branded "Britain's most dangerous" is no more.

The zebra crossing, on Horton Grange Road near the junctions of Spencer Road and Woodhead Road, has been replaced with traffic lights in a bid to boost safety.

There were repeated cases of drivers failing to stop at the zebra crossing for pedestrians and cyclists, with viral footage of near-misses and collisions even being highlighted by well-known TV and radio personality Jeremy Vine.

Campaigner Mohammad Haleem welcomed Bradford Council's work to install the traffic lights.

He told the Telegraph & Argus last month: "This has been a very long time coming. 

"We started a petition demanding changes at least 15 years ago - 15 years, can you believe it?

"We've witnessed so many collisions there over the years - action is very much needed

Councillor Alex Ross-Shaw, Bradford Council's executive member for regeneration, planning, and transport, said: "This zebra crossing has recently been the scene of several incidents where drivers have failed to stop for those crossing the road and a new crossing with traffic lights should make it safer."
