A650 Hard Ings Road Improvements, Keighley

People using the key A650 route between Bradford and Keighley and beyond will experience less congestion due to road widening, remodelled junctions and new traffic signals to improve traffic flow. Reducing congestion along Hard Ings Road will increase investment opportunities in the area and increase economic growth.

Local people will enjoy the benefits of new, segregated cycle and pedestrian routes along the southern side of Hard Ings Road and a new toucan crossing at Lawkholme Lane to Royd Way tying into the existing cycle route on Royd Ings Avenue.

Where possible, new native trees will be planted along the roadside and verge areas and any trees needing to be removed for road widening will be replaced with trees either as part of the scheme or nearby. Landscaped areas affected by the construction works will be replanted and the embankment at the cricket ground cleared and replaced with new shrubs and trees.
