Bridge Street and Bradford Interchange

Bridge Street and Bradford Interchange Visualisation

What is happening here?

Our team are working to close Bridge Street at its junction with Hall Ings, add a turning circle by the junction and add in some taxi and disabled parking ranks.

Which roads will be affected?

A map detailing the changes that Bridge Street and Bradford Interchange will see as part of the Bradford City Centre Walking and Cycling Improvements Scheme. There are nine captions on the map. Caption one: A coach parking space is being put in on Drake Street and the existing three space taxi stand is being removed to accommodate this. The section south of the junction will be closed with access in and out of the existing car park retained but will have no interaction with the junction. Caption two: The existing island will be removed and a give way is being put in on Ebenezer Street. Caption three: The existing crossing at the junction of Vicar Lane and Bridge Street will be retained. Caption four: Bridge Street would be closed to traffic from its junction with Hall Ings. A turning circle to enable drop-off and pick-ups will be added. Caption five: There will be a disabled parking bay stretching from the turning head to Greenwood Court. Caption six: New taxi ranks will be put in on Bridge Street. Caption seven: A signalised crossing across Bridge Street is being put in at the bottom of Bridge Street near the junction with Vicar Lane. Caption eight: The section of Vicar Lane, south of the junction with Bridge Street will be closed to traffic, with access permitted for those entering and existing the car park. Caption nine: A major new liner parking is being added on Hall Ings, between Bridge Street and Jacob’s Well.

What effect will construction have on the road network?

We are anticipating that all roads will remain open to traffic, as they currently are, until spring 2024. Until then, there may be temporary lane closures, temporary traffic lights and temporary changes to footpaths to enable us to make changes to the highway network. However, you will still be able to access all roads by car, van, motorcycle etc. 

Please plan your journey ahead of time as we expect there to be delays. From spring 2024, Hall Ings, Bank Street, Market Street, Broadway and some of Bridge Street will not be accessible by car with exceptions for deliveries only.
