Bradford A6177 Outer Ring Road/Thornton Road

The road suffers from congestions with junctions that cannot handle capacity. Traffic systems require updating with a remit for active travel included. The scheme involves a package of measures to improve highway efficiency for the benefit of all road users along part of the A6177 Outer Ring Road which forms part of the West Yorkshire Key Route Network (KRN).

This scheme focuses on traffic improvements at two junctions: the A6177 Whetley Lane/Toller Lane junction and the A6177 Thornton Road/Cemetery Road junction.

The improvements will be focused around the provision of two lane approaches where feasible, provision of dedicated turning facilities, and improvements for pedestrians and cyclists.

Once the scheme is delivered, it is anticipated that journey time reliability will improve on the western section of the A6177 Outer Ring Road and congestion will reduce along the A6177 Outer Ring Road.

The scheme's wider social benefits include a more attractive environment for the local community, and better quality of life, with reduced congestion improving air quality and connectivity to employment and housing.
