Traffic delays expected in Bradford on the Thornton Road A6177 junction

We are advising commuters to expect significant traffic delays in Bradford on Thornton Road at the junction of Whetley Lane and Ingleby Road (A6177) whilst we carry out emergency repair work to a water main.

The work will commence on Friday 18th November at 9:30am and will mean temporary traffic lights and traffic diversions are put in place around the junction. Repairs are expected to take up to 10 days before the junction returns to normal.

Commuters who use this route should expect significant delays, particularly around the Victoria Shopping Centre, whilst the emergency work is undertaken.

Street signs have already been installed on the pavements forewarning commuters of the roadworks.

Karen Cross, customer service manager at Yorkshire Water said: “We must repair a broken water valve on Thornton Road that is a vital component of the local water main network.  If we didn’t carry out this work now there would be a risk of thousands of residents in the area losing water supply.

We aim to complete this scheme as quickly as possible and have a traffic management plan in place to manage congestion. However, our advice would be for commuters to take an alternative route if they can whilst we carry out this essential work.”
