DRIVERS have been reminded about new traffic rules as work to transform Bradford city centre gets underway. 

Bradford Council removed traffic lights at the approaches to Jacobs Well roundabout at the end of November.

Drivers should now give way to the right, the Council said. 

In an update shared on the Council's E-newsletter, a spokesperson said: "This change allows us to disconnect the signals and cables so we can continue the removal of the concrete which stands above the roundabout. This is so we can remove it ready for the next stage.

"Following the completion of this work, the next stage will be to construct the new carriageway, and install the new ‘super crossing’ across Prince's Way.

"Following this, from early 2024, motor vehicles will no longer be able to travel along Hall Ings."

How long will the roadworks last?

The Bradford city centre scheme will be delivered in two phases - starting with enabling works on road and pavements and new bus routes. 

These works on the highway around the city centre will tail off by January 2024

The second phase will begin in 2024, focusing on public spaces and walking and cycling routes.
