Harrogate Road and New Line Junction Improvement Scheme

The Harrogate Road and New Line junction improvement scheme has received investment through the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Growth Deal - a £1 billion package of government investment to accelerate growth and create jobs across Leeds City Region. This scheme was awarded funding in 2015. Alongside the funding from the Leeds City Region LEP Growth Deal, the scheme has also been funded by developer contributions.

Both Harrogate Road and New Line are significant routes within Bradford’s transport network. Harrogate Road is a key commuter route between Bradford, Rawdon and Harrogate, as well as being the primary access between Bradford and Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA). New Line is another key route and provides access between Keighley, Shipley, Bingley and Leeds.

The changes to the Harrogate Road and New Line Junction will:

  • reduce congestion by increasing the capacity of the road network.
  • encourage sustainable modes of transport by improving the provision for cyclists and pedestrians
  • improve access to nearby transport hubs bettering connectivity and attracting investment and development in the local area.

Further scheme details can be found on the scheme details page.

The public consultation for this scheme ran from 30 August 2016 until 23 September 2016 and included a public drop in session at Albion Mills Business Centre, Bradford on 15 September 2016.

In order to implement the scheme, land assembly and supporting formal legal orders need to be obtained, including a Compulsory Purchase Order and a Side Road Order. A link to these documents can be found on the Compulsory Purchase Order and Side Roads Order page
