Welcome to the website for the Bradford-Shipley Travel Alliance. You can find out more about us here.

Please sign-up for our newsletter using the sign-up box on this page, if you agree with our concerns:

Any new road scheme between Bradford and Shipley must result in:

  • Significantly improved air quality and safety in all residential areas affected by the proposed scheme, including for all schools.
  • A response to the climate emergency including reduced carbon emissions, increased investment in public transport, walking and cycling, and less motor traffic overall.

We request that no further consultation goes ahead without information that shows how the intended benefits of the scheme will be guaranteed.

Carbon emissions from transport are more than we thought, says government.

A technical annex to the government’s assessment of carbon emissions trebles the impact of Electric vehicles and increases the amount of traffic expected. The report comments “This increases the need for government policy to achieve our Carbon Budgets”.

It could have put this more plainly with words like these: Our road expansion plans, and our lack of attention to public transport, are critically upsetting our chances of survival.
