Over 50 people have signed the petition requesting various traffic measures on Park Lane.

A petition calling for road safety measures to be introduced on a Queensbury street will be discussed by Councillors today.

Over 50 people have signed the petition requesting various traffic measures on Park Lane to “protect the most vulnerable road users from motor vehicles which use Park Lane to avoid driving through into Queensbury’s Village centre.”

The petition went before the Bradford South Area Committee last night, where members will hear that work is being done by highways officers to move forward with improvements to the road.

The road, which links Scarlet Heights and Brighouse Road, is currently poorly lit and has no footway. There is access to a farm, a nursing home and a parking area/pedestrian access to Foster Park.

A report into the committee says money set aside for infrastructure improvements linked with a housing development at Harrowings Farm on Park Lane would be used to fund any works. It says negotiations with the developer to secure the funds were ongoing.

Once they become available, the changes will include a shared area for cyclists and pedestrians, a one way system, and “other measures that would prohibit heavy goods vehicles.”

The committee meets in City Hall at 5pm.
