SIR - The shutting of Hall Ings is going to cut the City in half and Bradford Council is repeating the folly of separate train stations, never mind access to the shops if people cannot walk far.

The NCP is almost demolished and backs onto the current inoperable bus station.

Leave Hall Ings open and allow a temporary bus station on the NCP car park which will be in the centre of the city, allowing time to extend into the old bus station when new plans are developed which could include a modified entry to the interchange at a later date.
