SIR – The T&A has been generous in its attention to Queensbury CHAP’s – Community Heritage & Action Partnership – campaign to preserve the Queensbury Tunnel, but unfortunately your last article (T&A, May 3, New group is told ‘funding will be an issue’ before it has held its first meeting) was a little misleading.

We know the Highways Agency does not have allocated funds for a cycleway through the tunnel – their current brief is to protect properties, roads etc above the tunnel and safeguard the public. But that does not mean there is no cash for such schemes!

On Saturday May 1, Robert Goodwill MP, Under-Secretary of State for Transport, spoke in Leeds City Hall: “There is the potential to put even more of these lost railways back into use as dedicated cycle ways.

“For example, I know the Queensbury tunnel is one potential option between Halifax and Bradford”.

The open meeting of Queensbury CHAP next Thursday (7pm in Holy Trinity Church) is the first step in demonstrating that Queensbury wants a share of the £278 million that the Government intends to invest in cycling.

Here’s an opportunity for Bradford to develop a magnificent tourist attraction – let’s do it!
