A NUMBER of 20mph zones are to be introduced around schools in the Bradford district.

The new limit will be enforced along four streets in Shipley: George Street, Mary Street, Minorca Mount, and Valley Heights.

The alteration to impose the new speed limit was made official by Bradford Council under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.

Safety being a top priority, these measures should ensure the increased protection of Shipley’s younger residents, say council officials.

The order will come into action on Monday March 4.

To view the order and a detailed map of the affected areas, interested parties can visit Customer Services Reception at City Hall during regular office hours.

Alternatively, the information can be found on the council’s website Bradford.gov.uk.

Queries about the order, or those wishing to challenge its legitimacy, can do so within six weeks from the order signing date by applying to the High Court.

Shahid Aziz, Engineer - Traffic & Road Safety South, can answer inquiries via email: shahid.aziz@bradford.gov.uk, quoting reference number HS/TRSS/105704/S.

Another traffic order issued by Bradford Council will ban a right turn from Hutton Road to Southfield Road.
