THIS aerial shot of Jacobs Well shows the huge transformation it has undergone.

The roundabout, which had subways underneath and had been a fixture in the city for decades, has been filled in to create a new ‘super crossing’.

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

The work is part of an ongoing city centre transformation project, that will see new, traffic-free areas as well as new routes and facilities for public transport, walking and cycling.

Last year, Bradford Council said: “There will no longer be a need for a roundabout at Jacobs Well when Hall Ings becomes a new traffic-free linear park.”

And councillor Alex Ross-Shaw, Bradford Council’s executive member for regeneration, planning and transport, said: “The filling in of the subways at Jacobs Well roundabout mark an important milestone in the programme of works being undertaken as part of the Transforming Cities Fund project.

“This project sees the largest transformation of the city centre in decades, creating new open traffic-free spaces making it safer, easier and more pleasant for people to get around and between the shopping and entertainment areas.”
