Purpose of the consultation

 

City Of Bradford  Metropolitan District Council Speed Limit (No.6) Order 2020 B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside), Wilsden

 

Notice is hereby given that City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council made the above Order on 29 July 2021 under its powers contained in the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the effect of which is to introduce a 20 miles per hour speed limit on B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside) from a point 192 metres east of its junction with Old Allen Road, to a point 26 metres south east of its junction with Bents Lane, to encourage appropriate vehicle speeds on the approach to, and through, the Laneside hamlet.

 

It is also to introduce a 20mph speed limit on the following lengths of carriageway within the immediate vicinity of the hamlet at Laneside:

 

      i.        The whole of the adopted length of Station Road – from its junction with B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside) for a distance of 770 meters in a south westerly direction;

 

    ii.        That section of Brown Lee Lane from its junction with B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside) for a distance of 62 metres in a northerly direction;

 

   iii.        That section of Old Allen Road from its junction with B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside) for a distance of 110 metres in a southerly direction;

 

The 20mph speed limits will help protect vulnerable road users, including children, pedestrians and cyclists, and decrease the risk of being injured in a collision and/or the resulting severity. It is also considered that the 20mph speed limits may have a positive effect on encouraging walking and cycling activity, as well as helping to reduce severance and enhance liveability.

 

It is also to introduce a 30mph speed limit on the following lengths of carriageway:

 

   iv.        B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside) from a point 26 metres south east of its junction with Bents Lane, to a point 510 metres north west of its junction with Bents Lane;

 

    v.        Bents Lane – from its junction with B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside) for a distance of 17 metres in a north westerly direction; and

 

   vi.        Old Allen Road – from a point 110 metres south of its junction with B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside) for a distance of 385 metres in a southerly direction.

 

The 30mph speed limits are intended to act as ‘buffer zones’ between lengths of carriageway subject to exiting speed limits higher than 30mph, and the 20mph speed limit lengths.

 

The Order comes into force on 9 August 2021 and a copy of the Order together with a map showing the affected roads may be examined below or obtained from Craig Williams by telephone on 01535 618294 or by email Craig.Williams@bradford.gov.uk quoting reference number P/HS/THS/104799/GA-1A.

 

If you wish to question the validity of the Order, or of any provision contained therein on the grounds that it is not within the powers conferred by the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, or on the grounds that any requirements of that Act or of any Instrument made under it, have not been complied with in relation to the Order, you may, within six weeks from the date upon which the Order was made on 29 July 2021 apply to the High Court for this purpose.
