Robbie Moore, the Member of Parliament for the Keighley Constituency in the United Kingdom, has announced his petition to build the A629 dual carriageway between Silsden and Steedton. He urged people to stand together and stop the Bradford Council and the West Yorkshire Mayor from dithering and delaying the project.

While addressing the concern over the delay in the project, the Member of Parliament for the Keighley, Robbie Moore, shared that the Conservative Government has long waited for the footbridge to be built over the busy A629 dual carriageway between Silsden and Steeton.

Despite funding being allocated by the Conservative Government to build the pedestrian bridge, Labour-run Bradford Council and Labour-run West Yorkshire Combined Authority continue to dither & delay delivering the project.

MP Robbie urged people to consider this matter and mentioned some of the significant steps the Conservative Government has taken to bring forward this project.

  1. Let’s remind ourselves it was 7 YEARS ago since £700,000 for a feasibility study for the bridge was given by our Conservative Government to local Labour-run authorities.
  2. It took them four years to produce a report saying ‘we need a bridge’.
  3. Now, three years on, with the money allocated to the scheme by our conservative Government, the bridge is yet to be built.

Further, he raised his concern and highlighted the delays and incognizance the project has faced due to the Labour Council.

 “It is high time for Bradford Council and the West Yorkshire Mayor to stop dithering and delaying and to crack on and get our much-needed pedestrian bridge built,” he asserted.

At last, he urged people to sign his petition calling on Bradford Council and WYCA to get on with it and shared a link as mentioned:
